A wonderful A. purpurata cultivar with beautiful rosy-pink blooms. Suitable for container culture up to a point, but, if you want big lush full blooms, you will eventually have to plant this in the ground. Can be planted out in zone 8B IF you are willing to go to extraordinary measures to protect it in the winter from hard freeze. Only blooms on at least 2 year canes.
