Enkianthus campanulatus 'Showy Lantern' and the species
This is a great plant, but another Ericaceous taxa that needs to be babied for a few years as far as watering goes. Not too much and definitely not too little. When it's finally established though it's a wonderful shrub to small tree. I remember being stumped by one in Chevy Chase. I don't recall the exact height but it was much taller than I am....I think it was at least 20 feet tall. I finally realized what it was and felt a bit foolish. It's a great plant if you've got good irrigation or patience and a good attention span.
