Lespedeza thunbergii 'Samindare' - Bush Clover
Lespedezas are colorful shrubs for late-summer bloom, and it's quite easy to become enamored of them. They require so little care but give so much pleasure. The bright fuchsia flowers of 'Samindare' will create an enchanting focal point in your sunny border. Grows to 5-6 feet high and like other Bush Clovers, it should be cut back to a foot or so high in spring. They may die back during winter, but they resprout from the roots and bloom the same season. They are late to break dormancy, so please do not be alarmed if your Lespedezas arrive with new growth not yet visible. Z. 5-8
