Leptodermis oblonga is a dwarf ground-hugging shrub with small purple-pink lilac-shaped flowers starting in June and continuing all summer. Native to northern China. The blooms are very fragrant and produces flowers beginning is early summer and intermittently throughout much of the growing season. It is late to leaf out in spring but give it time, blooms on new wood. Sometimes referred to as baby Lilac shrub. We continue to be amazed at its subtle but relentless flower power. The small habit of this plant makes it a perfect addition to the front of the bed or small residential lots.
