|A small to medium shrub growing to only 5 to 6 feet tall. It is generally not found outside botanical gardens. The foliage is fine textured. Flowers are borne on 2 1/2 inch long racemes and are a delicate pink. Overall a very pretty plant. The foliage remains a rich green and the plant is not much troubled by pests. Good in a border or mass planting. Does not seem to perform well in high heat climates. Native to central China, introduced 1901.
