Concerning the Sorbaria species, where novelties are rare, PINK HOPI® 'COUSORB05' has been chosen for its qualities, different from those of 'Sem'.
The compound, serrated foliage is delicate, light and harmoniously layered. It is a remarkable plant, due to its young variegated shoots which are red, pink and cream, then veined with white. Bud burst is extremely precocious, starting in early March. The shoots withstand the cold (at least up to – 3° C). The colourful period lasts a month longer than in the traditional varieties, the shrub shines until the end of Mai. Later, in the summer, the foliage turns green.
The shape of PINK HOPI® has the additional advantage of staying compact and this selection produces less suckers. Its dense foliage makes it a good ground cover.
The white flower panicles bloom in June – July.
The shrub does not need any maintenance (neither treating nor pruning). It is very hardy.
