Thanks to plantsman Ted Stephens for bringing this wonderful deciduous perennial lespedeza back from Japan and making it available. Lespedeza 'Little Volcano' is a selection from the Ryukyu Islands, Japan. Lespedeza liukiuensis, unlike Lespedeza thunbergii, makes an upright clump instead of one whose branches are pendulous. The 6' tall x 12' wide mound of branches, clothed with small, dark green leaves, explodes, starting in mid-September, as the stems are smothered with bright red-purple flowers that last until mid-October...stunning!
