Sharp, coppery-red new foliage is even brighter and more dramatic than the species. Leaves mature to deeply cut dark green. Low spreading plants develop colonies via rhizomes. A bold and beautiful choice for shady borders and woodland gardens lacking off season color. Exceptional in conjunction with boulders and natural pools. Drought resistant once established. Partial to full shade. Moderate growth 18 to 24 inches tall.
