Kolkwitzia

Kolkwitzia amabilis ‘Pink Cloud’ full sun

Originally selected in 1946 at Wisley’s Royal Horticultural Gardens, this reliable eye-catching old-timer delivers a splendid showing of broadly ovate dark green foliage and bell-shaped, yellow-throated clear pink blooms year after year. Arched suckering branches sculpt a pleasing vase-shaped shrub that features capsule-like fruit and attractive exfoliating bark once the clustered flowery profusion has faded. A deciduous deer resistant member of the Honeysuckle family and kin to Weigela, ‘Pink Cloud’s dense vigorous growth appreciates periodic thinning, even a late winter hard pruning and craves a well-drained sunny spot with moderate moisture.

Blooms April–May.

Size: 6'–9' high x 5' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
