The Beauty Bush is a graceful, free-flowering shrub, which offers profusions of bell-shaped flowers. The yellowthroats of the flowers complement the pale to deep pink bells. These delicate, silky flowers appear in late spring to early summer, and they match nicely with the dark pink buds. The flowers are fragrant and attract pollinating insects, yet the plant is deer resistant. Birds dart in and out of the dense foliage, enjoying the cover the bush provides. Smooth, golden leaves, dipped in bronze, add beauty and texture when the forest is not in bloom. In the fall, the golden leaves turn fiery orange and red. The flaky light-brown bark and weeping branches are showcased in the winter landscape. The bush makes an excellent privacy hedge or windbreak because it propagates by suckering. This shrub also produces a gorgeous specimen plant and looks lovely in woodland gardens.
