    Design IdeasOutstanding evergreen shrub displays attractive foliage in all seasons; new growth is scarlet maturing to blue green in summer. Intense red fall color after a cold snap is its hallmark. The moderately fast-growing, dense, mounded form reaches 3 to 3.5 ft. in height and 3 ft. wide, making Gulf Stream ideal for use around foundations or in mixed borders. Small white flower stalks are a bonus. Very hardy and virtually pest and disease free. Full to partial sun. Cutting grown.
