Lespedeza 'White Fountain' is a stunning perennial bush clover, introduced and named by Nancy Goodwin of Montrose Gardens, who found this on her property and realized it was much better than the Lespedeza thunbergii 'Albiflora' of the trade (earlier flowering and no color reversions). Cut to the ground in spring, this 6' tall x 12' wide deciduous grower will resprout rapidly, akin to the proverbial beanstalk. In late summer and into fall, the weeping branch tips of Lespedeza 'White Fountain' are clothed in sprays of white pea-like flowers!
