LoreCandy Apple is noteworthy for several distinctive features: the even more compact form (4 to 5 ft. tall and wide, as compared to Limelight's compact 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide), the strong, sturdy stems that do not flop, and the exquisite flower color backed by lush, dark green foliage. Flowers and foliage will both take on a rosy-red tinge in fall as temperatures drop, prior to dormancy. After the foliage has dropped, the dried blooms fade to a creamy-ecru color and will persist through winter.
Average Size at MaturityReaches 4 to 5 ft. tall and wide, in natural form; prune to maintain topiary shape and size.
Bloom TimeSummer
Design IdeasThe compact size, with lush, large, dark green foliage that complements the show-stopping blooms is great for use as a focal plant for smaller foundation gardens. An ideal addition as a specimen plant to formal knot gardens paired with clipped boxwoods.
