Spectacular late spring color from showy trusses of enchanting pink flowers on a vigorous, large, broadly rounded shrub with leathery, dark green foliage on red stems. Tolerates heavy shade and thrives in cooler regions but benefits from protection from winter winds. Works well as a seasonal specimen in a mixed shrub border. Evergreen.
