SKU: 205343


Family Scrophulariaceae
Originating from China

Slender, arching shoots with silvery/green leaves. In early summer it produces fragrant lilac flowers that wreathe the pendulous branches and cause a sensation, looking like a pink firework has been set off. The branches arch and then hang back down in an untidy yet charming way, adding to the display. This makes the most superb weeping tree with a little pruning, and is excellent as a specimen, or the pendulous branches can emerge from amongst other plants, breaking forward from other heavier foliage in a jungle setting, or from in between small trees in a woodland style.
This robust species is easy to grow, tolerating a wide range of soil conditions, it likes sun or part shade and whilst it appreciates a moist soil it will grow in chalky or sandy ones.

Height and spread after 4 – 5 years 2m x 1.5m
Semi mature height and spread, if not pruned after 10 – 12 years 3 x 3m
