Lespedeza thunbergii 'Gibraltar'

Lespedeza thunbergii 'Gibraltar'

Bush Clover

Rosy purple pea-like flowers explode in August and September. Lespedeza 'Gibraltar' is a semi-woody shrub with an arching, fountain-like habit.   Treat as cut-back shrub by cutting to the ground in late winter to early spring.  It will respond by producing rapid annual growth.  'Gibraltar' Bush Clover tolerates dry sites and looks amazing cascading down walls or over embankments.  It was found by the great plantsman (and artist!) William Frederick, Jr. of Delaware.  In our experience, Gibraltar is indistinguishable from Lespedeza 'Spring Grove'.
