April Flower: Corylopsis ‘Spring Purple’

Corylopsis 'Spring Purple'

Of all the many beautiful spring-flowering shrubs, corylopsis are among the finest. The members of this small genus have the welcome ability to illuminate the semi-shaded locations in which they thrive with glorious flowers that dangle gracefully on thin stems from mid-spring to midsummer. Their flowers are borne in pendant racemes that resemble catkins or hops. The cultivar C. sinensis var. sinensis ‘Spring Purple’ bears foliage that is a glorious rich plum-purple when young.
