Here is where I will deposit all of the research I collect about my favorite trees, plants, shrubs, flowers, and when and where to plant them!

Beautybush 6'-10' Shrub

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.
