AVAILABLE 2019. From China, this is a rarely seen shrub that doesn't draw attention to itself for much of the year, sitting quietly in its corner with its arching stems clothed in mint-scented dark green leaves rather like those of a buddleia. But, come the end of summer into autumn, Rostrinucula Dependens turns itself into a something like a waterfall of dangling racemes of pink to lilac pink flowers. Peculiar in the proper sense of the word. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 4 to 6 feet. 2 litre pot.
When your rostrinucula is in flower, you will understand why it is sometimes called weeping buddleia or weeping butterfly bush.
In cold areas it may die back to the ground, so don't worry if it does. It will be back next spring! Prune it in autumn and again in early spring if required.
Rostrinucula Dependens is a hardy deciduous shrub with pendant lilac pink flower racemes in late summer and autumn suitable for sun or semi-shade.
