Description

Native to Hupeh in China, Kolkwitzia amabilis 'Pink Cloud' is known for its slightly pendulous branches, festooned with masses of pink, bell-shaped flowers in summer. Named after Professor Richard Kolkwitz (a German botanist), this is a reliable and eye-catching, flowering garden shrub!

Kolkwitzia amabilis 'Pink Cloud' will grow in some shade but always seems to flower best if planted in a warm, sunny position.
