Outstanding Shrub for Late-Summer Color

by Charlie Nardozzi


Most flowering shrubs bloom from early spring to summer, and by the time July rolls around there aren?t many colorful shrubs other than crape myrtles and hydrangeas. But a relatively uncommon shrub from Korea and China is now becoming more widely available because of its late-season white flowers.

Campylotropis macrocarpa is a 4- to 5-foot-tall shrub from Korea and China that blooms from mid to late summer. This legume family shrub features a multitude of 3-inch purple and white bloom clusters with red centers. Campylotropis is a widely adapted, sun-loving, deciduous shrub that?s hardy in USDA zones 5 to 9.
