Copper Flame™ Winter Spike

Stachyurus yunnanensis 'Djhstcynis'

A superb late flowering evergreen from western China. The distinctive foliage is an arresting shade of silvery jade while the new growth in spring emerges in tones of burnished red, a color that remains in the leaf petioles throughout the year. Ruby red spikes appear in winter, opening to soft yellow blooms.
