Named in honor of the illustrious American shrub breeder Don Egolf, this compact free flowering treasure has a lot to offer. Its clustered, bright rosy mauve blooms gather “stem to stern”, orchestrating an abundant spring display that nearly engulfs the attractive multibranched frame.
Thankfully incapable of spawning unwanted seedlings, the vibrant nonfruiting flowers herald heart-styled, dark green deciduous leaves. Unfazed by hot dry conditions and different soil types, but sensitive to poorly drained sites, ‘Don Egolf’ exhibits excellent disease and pest resistance and makes a stellar slow growing specimen for the smaller garden, a shrubby border or the woodland’s edge.
Blooms April – May.
Size: 8' 0" – 9' 0" high x 8' 0" – 9' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 6.
