Bright yellow foliage matures to yellow-green in summer and turns a coppery-orange in fall. Pink flowers in the summer contrast with the leaves. Displays extraordinary heat tolerance once established. The plant's compact habit makes it a good choice in the foreground of shrub borders, contrasting nicely with many other colors in the garden. It is a moderate grower, three to four feet tall, spreading wider. Deciduous. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering. Full sun. Moderate grower to 3 feet tall, 4 feet wide. Cutting grown.
