I have two bushes, one older than the other. They both started out looking like groundcover. However this year they both just took off an shot up! Not sure if it was the mild winter we had or the plentiful rain we have had all summer. I am going to take the long term approach with them and see what happens. When it blooms the flowers are just darling! So I am hoping to have a Bush with 5-6' height and gently arching branches.

This beautybush is colorful all season long!
Beautybush is known for putting on a spectacular flower show in the spring, but then fading into the landscape. Dream Catcher® beautybush changes that - it's a beautybush that offers season-long interest, thanks to its sunset-hued foliage. In spring, its gracefully arching branches are covered in trumpet-like pink blooms, each with a yellow throat. Dream Catcher® beauty bush grows well in shade, even the notoriously tricky dry shade, where its golden foliage can bring extra light and cheer.
Top reasons to grow Dream Catcher® beautybush:
- The only beautybush with colorful gold and orange foliage
- A stunning display of flowers in spring
- This large plant is an easy-care way to keep down weeds and take up space
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.
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.

Easy to grow. Just blooming for the first time this summer after being in the ground for about 3-4 years. Spectacular lime color. Flowers are delicate dropping pink clusters. I made sure to plant this where we can see from out window.LeeRichmondVermontUnited States3 years ago

In the spring I was so taken by the color however as time went on it didn't hold my interest for long. It grew a bit leggy so I gave up on it. I might try it in a container with more pampering to see if it performs better.MonaMarylandUnited States6 years ago
Spent most of the first three seasons acting as a groundcover, spreading to almost 5 feet across and only reaching 2 feet high during this time.JulieNew YorkUnited States6 years ago
