Found at the old Gibraltar estate in Wilmington, Delaware, this spectacular lespedeza was selected and named by plantsman Bill Frederick. Our plant graces the top of our grotto with pea-like foliage on long, arching branches. Emerging from the ground each season, the branches quickly reach 6' tall x 12' wide. In late summer and fall, the branches are laden with thousands of lavender-pink flowers...a great arching effect for a wall or mixed into a perennial border. Visitors who see this plant in flower have a quick attitude adjustment about lespedezas!

Prune hard in late winter. A 'Must Have' for the Fall Garden. Discovered at old Gibraltar Estate in Wilmington, DE by Bill Frederick, Jr.
