This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist, well-drained soil, including chalk
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A beautiful, rounded, small tree or large shrub which flowers on bare branches. In mid spring, it is smothered in rose to blush pink, star-shaped flowers with long, narrow petals that emerge from darker pink buds. The leaves are mid green and the tree is deciduous. An elegant choice for a small garden. It can also tolerate chalky soils.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in midsummer. The best time to plant is in April, adding plenty of ericaceous compost to the planting hole, in a sheltered spot. Mulch in spring with manure and leafmould, especially on dry soils.
