Kolkwitzia amabilis

This large arching deciduous shrub from China isn’t seen anywhere near enough in Australian gardens. It is cold hardy, reasonably drought tolerant and will grow well in sun or semi-shade. It can easily reach 3 to 4metres tall and in late spring its arching elegant branches are covered with a mass of little pink trumpets with yellow spotting inside. It looks like Barbara Cartland being a twirling dervish! It is commonly known by the appropriate common name of Beauty Bush and I have flowering sized stock in 8″ pots at $22.50 as I write. Don’t miss out or you’ll be sorry.
