Morning Dew™ Stachyurus

Stachyurus praecox 'MonSilrlef'

An upright, deciduous shrub with beautiful green and cream variegated foliage that drops in fall, revealing dramatic mahogany-red stems. Unique pendulous blooms hang from the otherwise bare stems in winter, the showy racemes dripping with tiny, creamy yellow, bell-like flowers. A wonderful addition to shrub borders and woodland gardens.
