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' 0"–9' 0" high x 5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
