This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Very pretty, white flushed pink lacecap-like flowers appear on the tiered branches of this conical, deciduous shrub in early summer. Multi-stemmed, but more upright in habit than the species, it is perfect for the shrub border where space is at a premium. In autumn the leaves will take on good fiery colours before they fall providing another season of interest.

  • Garden care: Keep the pruning of young plants to a minimum. Any vertical shoots that threaten to spoil the distinctive tiered shape of established plants should be cut back to their point of origin in summer after flowering.

Very Good and Would Buy Again

I always want to buy a specific variety and find that Crocus does tend to have most of what I want and the plants are delivered quickly and are generally a good size and healthy. I would prefer cheaper delivery but usually buy out of season to get the best deals.

I bought this two years ago. The first year nothing much happened apart from growing a little and just a couple of clusters of flowers. The second year, what a difference it was smothered in flowers that go through phases of colour , green-white to Apple blossom and end up like raspberry ripple, then the berries come, clusters of bright red small berries that I hope the birds will love when they discover them. I like this shrub so much I am looking for places where I can plant more. Would highly recommend just have patience and it will reward you. Mine is planted in heavy clay with incorporated gravel, in a north facing site.

I bought this plant this year and it flowered beautifully but so far no berries have appeared. I have it in a 20litre pot with a good soil /peat mix? thanks

liamo

Hello, I'm sorry to hear your plant is not producing any berries. This could be caused by a number of things, however the most likely are either poor pollination, or the plant getting stressed in some way. The latter could be be caused by too much heat, or the plant getting too dry, and in an attempt to conserve its energy, the plant will shed all its fruit.

Hi purchased this two years ago. Need to move it and wondered when would best time. Any other advice would be welcome.

Just purchased Virburnam plicatum, Kilimanjaro sunrise. The plant is staked when I plant it out should I remove the cane or leave it?

Keen/gardener

Hello, Yes, I would remove the stake - provided it is not in a very exposed position.

Helen

I bought this plant about 18 months ago and so far it has not flowered. Why would this be?

eye

Hello there There are a number of reasons why plants don't flower including too much shade or not enough water or nutrients. It can also be caused by the plant putting on new root growth instead of focusing its energies on producing flowers. I can't be sure why yours has not produced flowers yet, but this was a young plant in 2lt pot so it will need time to get established. Given time and the right conditions there is no reason why it won't flower. You can often give them a bit of a push by feeding during the growing season with a high potash fertiliser.

Can this be grown in a pot, and will it also cope with the cooler climate of Edinburgh?

DavidS

Hello, This can be grown in a really large pot, provided it is kept well fed and watered - and it is described as being hardy in most places in the UK, coping with temperatures as low as -10 to -15C.
