During the American Civil War, Japan was fast becoming a Mecca for European botanical and horticultural exploration. The botanist Carl Maximowicz, who arrived in Japan in 1860, introduced the beautiful Redvein Enkianthus into Western horticulture and it was being cultivated by the 1870s. This upright, slow growing shrub forms layers of branches, which are quite distinctive. The lovely, long-lasting flowers are excellent for cutting. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8
