Pot Size: 5 litre
Description: A chance find of this little known gem that never fails to smother itself with small flowers every summer. It differs from our previous collection of this variety in producing its mass of flowers that are a contrasting pink in bud. This variety does not appear to be recorded in British horticulture for producing flowers in vast numbers over a longer period than the type species from May to July, all be it as smaller flowers. Our collection from the mountains of central Kyushu, Japan in 2006, where this deciduous small shrub only grew to 1.5m tall, bearing terminal and axillary congested panicles of flowers on slender branches of opposite finely toothed leaves, with few white stellate hairs below. Easily grown in any reasonable soil in sun or part shade. Hardy to -20 C.
