Kolkwitzia amabilis is a fast-growing deciduous shrub that produces masses of exquisitely detailed trumpet flowers, held on curved stems, during May and June. It is not hard to see why this plant is also known as the 'Beauty Bush'!

Kolkwitzia amabilis is extremely versatile and will grow happily in many different types of soil. For a stunning display, plant at the back of a mixed herbaceous border. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 4m (12').
