Design Ideas: Beauty Bush is among the small number of very high-quality shrubs prized for their graceful almost weeping form and charming flowers. It makes a perfect foundation plant that covers unsightly footings, crawl spaces, vents and utility pipes. Plant along fences or take advantage of its reliability by using as a background plant for your favorite flowering perennials. Good to soften corners and as a specimen it presents a decidedly lush character to any front-yard composition.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.

History

E. H. Wilson was so enamored by the flora of China at the turn of the century, and its potential destruction by the charcoal industry, that he was nicknamed "Chinese" Wilson for his efforts at preservation long before ecological concerns were popular.
