Pink buds open to incredibly full and wonderfully fragrant pale pink flowers in spring. Centennial Blush is a prolific bloomer with flower buds formed at almost every node yielding a fantastic floral display of delicate pink covering the entire plant. Attractive medium green foliage on an interesting branching structure follows in the summer turning yellow to bronze in autumn. Can be grown as a large shrub or a small tree, perfectly suited for small urban gardens. Bred by Michael Dirr of the University of Georgia.
