Okay, here's one I don't remember having seen before, but I found it while trying to identify others. The Kolkwitzia amabilis, better known as the Beautybush, blooms in late spring with pink bell-shaped flowers, and has beautiful red fall foliage. Also boasts dark green leaves and unique bark. This shrub, which grows (fast-growing, too!) to 6 to 10 feet tall, likes well-drained soil and full sun.
