Kolkwitzia amabilis
Beautybush

The stunning display of hundreds of white-pink flowers on a single Beautybush comprise its only ornamental attribute, as its fuzzy brown fruits, sprawling growth habit, and lack of fall color limit its widespread usage. This shrub is best placed by itsel in a large lawn, or as a component of the shrub border in a naturalized site, as it can easily grow beyond its intended boundaries (at least ten feet tall and ten feet wide at maturity).
