Design Ideas Smaller than its predecessors and impossibly bright, this is the consummate accent for Asian-inspired gardens or for shaded landscapes in need of color. Plant as a single specimen in smaller gardens and courtyards, where its color provides a focal point or accent. Use in clusters for a powerful presence in more spacious landscapes. Perfect as a lacy overhang that won't block sunlight to water gardens, pools and fountains. Ideal plant for spas in small urban backyard gardens. May also be planted in pots.
Foliage Color Multicolored
Companion Plants Pittosporum (Pittosporum); Rose (Rosa); Spreading Juniper (Juniperus); Cryptomeria (Cryptomeria); Abelia (Abelia)
CARE
Care Easily grown in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Drought tolerant but best with supplemental summer water. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
HISTORY
Lore 'Firepower' is said to not produce fruit or berries.
