Height: 8′-10′ Spread: 6′-8′. Here is a shrub that does well in a variety of soils and is a ’70 mph shrub’ striking even when viewed at that speed. Long thin twigs give the plant a wide-spreading and pendulous look. The foliage is blue-gray to silver and finely textured. Fragrant, early June flowers are a bright lilac and spiral along the previous year’s branches in a candy-cane fashion. (So, do not cut back in the spring!) Very attractive to butterflies. Full sun.
