LESPEDEZA thunbergii

RHS Award of Garden Merit
Pot Size
Collection only


Height x Spread: 120cm x 120cm

Commonly known as Thunberg bush clover, this Lespedeza produces long, arching stems which bear green clover-like foliage and racemes of deep rose pea-like flowers throughout the autumn.

Classed as a sub-shrub it behaves rather like a herbaceous perennial, each years top growth dies right back at the end of the season. Cut the old growth back hard in the spring to allow the new growth to emerge. Best when planted in a sunny,  sheltered position in a free-draining soil. Ideally plant it near to a wall where its elegant arching stems can be allowed to create a colourful cascade.
