Aptly named for the distinctive and unusual shell-like shape of its cascading blossom clusters, Pink Shell makes an excellent choice for the smaller garden. The flowers emerge with pale pink petals, which become pure white as the blossom season continues.
The young pale green leaves arrive at about the same time as the blossom. They take on orange hues in the autumn.
Pink Shell grows with a spreading form, and has real presence in the garden.
