Pink Cloud is a very beautiful variety of beauty bush with pink flowers. They are bell-shaped, deep pink outside, lighter pink inside with yellow-flushed throat. They come out in profusion from end May to early June. Beauty bush resembles two shrubs: leaves, bark and shape is very similar to deutzia, and flowers are almost identical to Engler abelia, . They are sweetly fragrant.

Deciduous leaves are mid green, broadly ovate. Another interesting feature is its peeling bark which is best viewed in winter when the shrub is without leaves. It grows into a spreading, large shrub. When fully established, new growths are long and slightly drooping.

For profuse flowering and denser plant we recommend cutting off stems that are older than 2 years to 2-3 strong buds immediately after flowering (June/July). It is soil tolerant, but will thrive in fertile, well-drained but moist soil, in full sun. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
