Enkianthus campanulatus

Enkianthus

Enkianthus campanulatus full sun  partial shade

The Chinese call the blossoms of this shrub Tsiau-Tsung-hoa or Suspended Bells. Botanically speaking, the true flowers are enclosed in an assemblage of clustered bracts, for a flower-within-a-flower appearance. Borne in clusters, each petal of these ivory green blooms is lightly veined with pink and ends in a delicately scalloped deep pink tip. The glossy, jade-colored foliage provides brilliant fall color. Enkianthus campanulatus is an elegant specimen to star in the shrubby border.

Blooms May.

Size: 10'–16' high x 4' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Ribes sanguineum ‘King Edward VII’ for its colorful blooms that spruce up a grey winters day. The Red Winter Currant, adorned with pendulous late winter clusters of rich scarlet-red flowers, well-mannered bare arching branches spawn palmately lobed medium green leaves in early spring. Following the fantastic long lasting floral show, persistent green and bright red berries, which ripen to a frosted dark blue, heighten summer appeal and come fall, finely serrated urbane foliage broadcasts lovely amber, pink and golden tones. Introduced into the annals of British horticulture in 1817, ‘King Edward VII’s narrowly upright and compact carriage is easily managed, withstands drought once established and effortlessly dominates a sunny mixed border or a bright woodland realm.
