We can see why this deciduous shrub is also known as the 'Beauty Bush'; during May and June, the arching stems of Kolkwitzia are smothered with masses of intricately detailed, trumpet flowers!

Not always seen in the UK, Kolkwitzia amabilis is fast-growing, hardy and will be one of the first shrubs to begin flowering in the summer. Plants are versatile, and will grow in many different soil types. Plant at the back of a mixed herbaceous border for a real treat! Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 4m (12').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
