Bloom TimeFall through Winter
Design IdeasThis low and wide spreader boasts hot pink flowers and is ideal for raised planters in city gardens. Allow its unique weeping form to create the background for a romantic garden setting, or use it as a front-of-the-border feature. Excellent up against the house to cover foundations and to tuck neatly beneath windows. For a colorful effect during the dull days of winter, mass several under very large tree canopies with filtered shade. Equally at home as a single specimen around water gardens and pools, where the pendulous branches may trail off boulders and falling petals may float upon the still water.
