This is an incredibly beautiful plant. Mine grew almost 12 ft tall. Cascading clusters of blush pink flowers with orange veining in the middle. They were truly magnificent and everyone stopped to admire them.

With its more dwarf habit, this beautybush can be used as a small hedge or foundation plant.Maintenance Notes:
Prefers well-drained soils but fairly adaptable to other soil types. If necessary, prune immediately after the spring bloom. It blooms on old wood and has a naturally arching habit that looks best unpruned. Best flowering occurs in full sun, but light shade isn't harmful, particularly in warmer climates.
If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.Jolene Jolene® Kolkwitzia amabilis 'SMNKADTF' USPP 34,295, Can PBRAF
