A Waterfall of Pink blooms

Gibraltar Bush Clover, Lespedeza thunbergii 'Gibraltar', is a deciduous shrub with enchanting pink blossoms. Plant one in a corner location where it can be used as a space-filler, or next to a wall where its cascading blooms are sure to create an impression.

Your Gibraltar is an amazing ornamental shrub! Its late summer/fall display is rich in panicles of delicate, pea-like flowers. The enchanting purple-hued, pink blossoms will virtually blanket the long, arching branches for the effect of a floral waterfall in your yard.

Gibraltar’s exquisite flowers later give way to pods of black seeds for an added decorative touch. Even when not in bloom, Gibraltar’s blue-shaded, green foliage will provide a charming display throughout the hot summer months, easily maintaining a vibrant appearance for your landscape.

Gibraltar Bush Clover will grow up to 5 feet tall with an 8 foot spread. It has an arching, fountain-like nature and is adaptable to a variety of conditions. Gibraltar blooms on new wood, so cutting it back to the ground not only presents a clean appearance for winter but also encourages new growth in spring. It’s adaptive to a variety of conditions and is amenable to pruning should a particular shape be desired.

Many would agree that Gibraltar is supreme among Lespedeza varieties. You won’t find a more impressive “waterfall of flowers” for your fall landscape than this enticing Gibraltar Bush Clover. Try one this year and you’ll certainly see why Gibraltar is a favored choice for fall-flowering shrubs.
