Native to central China. Graceful, upright growth 10 to 12 ft. tall and about as wide. If grown in partial shade, it has an arching form; in full sun, it’s denser and shorter. Gray-green leaves to 3 in. long sometimes turn reddish in fall. Blooms heavily in mid to late spring, bearing clusters of 1-in.-long, yellow-throated pink flowers. Blossoms are followed by conspicuous pinkish brown, bristly fruits that prolong color display. Brown, flaky bark gradually peels from stems during winter.
‘Pink Cloud’ is a particularly floriferous selection with light pink blooms that are slightly larger than those of the species.
Pastel pink petals have purplish pink bars. Compact grower to about 6 ft.
