Kolkwitzia Shrubs

Kolkwitzia Amabilis Pink Cloud (Beauty Bush)

This tough and hardy deciduous shrub develops arching stems that are clothed with masses of delicate pink trumpet shaped flowers in May and June each year. A staple of the shrub border where its graceful form will make a superb backdrop to smaller flowers at the front.

Kolkwitzia are very easy to grow succeeding in a wide variety of different well drained soil types from clay to chalk and they will thrive in full sun or partial shade. 2.5 metres x 2.5 metres.

Kolkwitzia Amabilis Pink Cloud benefits from a mulch in early spring to conserve moisture and deter weeds. After flowering prune out up to one third of the old stems to avoid the bush becoming too congested and ensure a steady supply of young healthy stems that will bear flowers in future years.
