Abbotswood is a bushy deciduous shrub of upright habit boasting masses of large, pure white flowers. The blossoms are so profuse that the green foliage can barely be seen. The flowers contrast nicely against the foliage mound of small, pinnate, dark blue green leaves. This plant is easy to care for and it can withstand extreme weather and drought in the summer as well as cold temperature in the winter.
