The hardiest of ''Enkianthus'' species is ''E. campanulatus'' , a medium-sized, narrow, upright, deciduous shrub. Its bright green glossy foliage gives brilliant coppery to red fall colors. In spring it offers a profusion of bell-shaped , creamy white flowers with red veins, similar to those of the distantly related ''Pieris''.

The plant was brought to England by Charles Maries, who was plant-hunting in Japan at the time for Veitch Nurseries. The shrub can exceed expectations of height.. more
