Enkianthus campanulatus 'Lipstick'

Red Vein Enkianthus
'Lipstick' is a Rare Find Nursery introduction with flirtatiously sweet creamy white flowers rimmed and infused with rosy red. The flowers are held in clusters on dangling stems in mid-late spring. Fall color is fabulous; depending on the temperature and amount of late summer rainfall the foliage turns shades of coppery gold to orange to red. Plants grow slowly with an upright habit to 4-6' tall in 5-6 yrs and grow well in either sun or part shade, though fall color is best with more sun. Shipping 24-30 plants in 1.5 gallon pots
