Pink buds open to incredibly full and wonderfully fragrant pale pink flowers in spring. Centennial Blush™ is a prolific bloomer with flower buds formed at almost every node yielding a fantastic floral display of delicate pink covering the entire plant. Blooms just as reliably in St. Paul, Minnesota as in Athens, Georgia. Centennial Blush™ is also well adapted to a variety of soils. Attractive medium green foliage on an interesting branching structure follows in summer, turning yellow to bronze in autumn. Can be grown as a large shrub or a small tree, perfectly suited for small urban gardens. Bred by Michael Dirr of the University of Georgia.
