Kolkwitzia amabalis in the Asian Collections USNA

The top two pictures are of the species, the bottom is K. amabalis 'Pink Cloud' with Nathan and our new intern Katie.

This is another one of those large deciduous shrubs that really only works for one season, about 3 weeks with luck. Here's the thing though; it's so beautiful, and a little bit fragrant, that it's worth the space if you have it. If you don't, find someplace that does, like a public garden, and try to catch it there.
