Beauty Bush Seeds
(Kolkwitzia amabilis) Deciduous. Zones 4-8.
The Beauty Bush lives up to its name with an impressive fountain-like spray of pink blossoms in a long-lasting Spring display! Even when the main show is over, its beautiful and unique shape is like a vase spilling over.
A member of the honeysuckle family and native to central China, Beauty Bush is easy and quick to grow. The shrub is grown mostly for its dazzling flowers, but is quite lovely year round with its height (6-10 feet), unique shape, and deep green bronze tipped foliage that transforms to a red-orange in Fall.
It blooms a bit later than other Spring shrubs and continues into June in some areas. The flowers are bell-shaped, pink with yellow throats, and appear in small clusters. The plethora of blossoms attract tons of birds, bees, and hummingbirds!
