A friend gave me a cutting that she rooted and I planted it as a 5" tall plant in late spring 2009. This year so far it has grown to about 15" inches tall. I am excited about having this beautiful flowing bush. It is growing in part shade in sandy soil.

In my experience, Pink Cloud Beauty Bush is beautiful, floriferous, fast-growing, hardy, maintenance-free shrub. Mine is planted in a site where it receives only afternoon sun (zone 5b), yet it has performed well. It is a large shrub, but it doesn't take up a lot of space because it has an upright growth habit. It does not need to be pruned until you want to limit its size. But why would you? It blooms from top to bottom. Each year it produces more blooms than the year before, and the blooms seem to last longer each year.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Sebastopol, California Granite City, Illinois Iowa City, Iowa Fairway, Kansas Gloucester, Massachusetts Seligman, Missouri Rochester, New York Lake Toxaway, North Carolina Enid, Oklahoma Conway, South Carolina North Augusta, South Carolina Okatie, South Carolina Pembroke, Virginia Shorewood, Wisconsin
