Elbow Bush gets its name from the way it forms branches at close to 90-degree angles. It has an irregular shape and dense growth, often forming thickets. Elbow Bush is one of the first plants to flower. It is a must-have in any wildscape or naturalized garden since it is wildlife friendly. It provides fruit, shelter, and nesting opportunities for birds and early blooms provide nectar for bees and butterflies. Elbow Bush does well as a background or screen shrub.
