Leptodermis oblonga

May-June

Leptodermis

Leptodermis oblonga full sun  drought tolerant

A virtual stranger to American gardens, this dainty sweetly scented little shrub delivers flowers in a big way! Easily mistaken for a miniature Lilac, L. oblonga debuts small starry lavender pink blooms, blanketing a compact low-to-the-ground mound of tidy medium green foliage in spring and intermittently through early autumn. With a delicately textured diminutive aspect that belies its ability to tackle pests, poor soil and drought, once established, this long blooming northern Chinese gem will colorfully perfume a walkway, a front row seat in the mixed border or even a container.

Size: 12"–18" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Leptodermis oblonga (S-0623)
