This Beautybush has vase shape.
Purplish bark when young, turning light brown as shrub matures. Bark peels and exfoliates on older stems. Will develop dense, compact shape and flower most copiously in full-sun. If placed in semi-shade the growth can be taller and arching, making its delicate flaking bark more visible in winter. Feathery pinkish brown-grey seedpods appear in summer after flowers, providing interest for an additional few weeks. Grows 6' to 10' in height with a smaller spread. Prefers soil to be well-drained, but adapts to many different types.
Dark green leaf color in summer turns to red hues in fall.
Delicate white-to-pink funnel-shaped blossoms.
The Beautybush is an easy-to-grow, fast-growing flowering shrub with late-blooming, pink, bell-shaped flowers. This vivid shrub features dark green leaf color in summer that turns reddish in fall. The unique bark is a purplish color when young that turns light brown and peels as the shrub matures. The combination of the 6' to 10' height with a smaller spread and fast growing rate makes this a good choice for a flowering deciduous hedge. The Beautybush likes well-drained soil and full sun for finest flowering.

The benefits of bare-root trees
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
