Small deciduous tree or large shrub. Ovate leaves. Purplish-pink, open goblet-shaped, fragrant flowers in mid-spring.

Prefer heavy, rich and moist lime free soil, but can be surprisingly adaptable. A sheltered position, especially protection from early morning sun when frosts are likely will reduce the risk of damage to the flowers. Can be pruned after flowering or in July or August.

other notes:
One of ''The Eight Little Girls'' cultivars, hybrids of M. liliflora 'Nigra' x M. stellata 'Rosea', raised by William F. Kosar and Dr. Francis de Vos, U.S. National Arboretum.
