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.

This beauty bush 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 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!

  • 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.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • 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.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
