Uses Notes: 

Gorgeous in the landscape as a specimen plant or in a container. Plant in the ground in fall if kept as a patio plant. Good in shrub borders and woodland gardens. Does best in filtered sun.

Maintenance Notes: 

Average, well drained soil. Best if pruned immediately after blooming. To renew the plant simply cut it to the ground after flowering. Medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rates of application.

Beauty Bush is known for putting on a spectacular flower show in the spring, but then fading into the landscape. Dream Catcher changes that - it's a beauty bush with season-long interest. The beautiful golden leaves with tips of bronze makes it interesting all season long!

Dream Catcher has soft pink spring flowers, and then the soft yellow foliage glows all season. In the fall this beauty has wonderful golden-orange color. It's a beauty bush that can provide color from spring to fall - a first for this genus!
