Locate this leggy bush near a walkway to invite guests to notice the star-shaped flowers attached along the branches hiden under the leaves. I've seen some who remove the leaves to expose the flowers, but I find the leaves very attractive. Named in honor of J. W. Goethe, the celebrated German poet and botanist, 1749-1832.
