Info

A low, dense suckering shrub (quite slow growing, though) that makes an excellent mass planting but can also be used as a focus plant is you can mow around it. Vivid rose-pink flower spikes, 4-5" long, cover this shrub in June with occasional rebloom for the rest of the summer. The stems die back in severe winters so treat it like a Buddleia in the north. 3 feet tall and good to zone 4.

Our cuttings of this Chinese native came from Christopher Lloyd via designer Edith Eddleman. The 18" tall, pea-foliaged stems arise from the slow-moving (NOT INVASIVE) rhizome. The miniature, wisteria-like pink flower clusters (6" long) cascade from the tops of the stems in spring and into early summer...WOW!
