Plant details

A miniature relative of the 100cm-high North American species, C. canadensis, this ornamental, slow-growing, weeping form won't exceed shoulder height. It makes a flamboyant sight in March and April when it breaks out with pink flowers on the bare, arching stems. It looks stunning when in full flower. The leaves turn yellow in autumn. Good drainage is vital as it dislikes wet ground.
