Honey-scented flowers and unique foliage make this a must-have for the garden! Fragrant, white, bottle-brush-like flowers bloom in April before the leaves emerge, the flowers lasting for weeks. Stunning leaves are dark blue-green with a dusty white overlay that imparts a glowing effect. If that's not enough, the leaves turn a kaleidoscope of yellow, orange and red in fall. Grows slowly into a dense, rounded form with no pruning necessary. This all-purpose plant can be used as a stand-alone specimen or grouped in borders and foundations.
