This has grown into one of our favorite small deciduous shrubs which we grow near our bog garden. Collected in China on the Sino-British Expedition to Cangshan in 1981 which was one of the first western botanic expeditions to China in modern times. Copious rosy-pink flowers on a 4'-6' tall shrub. Zone 6 at least.
Grand deciduous shrub which brings a strong visual sashay to the garden with unapologetically brazen variegated leaves. This makes eye contact and holds it until you respond. Then the scented white flowers appear and you know you should leave but your feet don't move leaving you in the best sort of trouble.
This excellent floriferous species comes to us from our dear friend Beverley Merryfield but originated at the Raulston Arboretum as does so many grand woody plants. Lots of starry white flowers in late spring and early summer makes you wonder what took you so long to grow this but you've corrected that error.
