The show begins with bronze new leaves, maturing dark green, followed by masses of brilliant red flowers and finally showy red-purple foliage color in the fall. Great for mass plantings, shrub borders and containers. Compact, slow-growing habit to 4 to 5 ft. tall and disease resistant foliage means easier care. Full sun. Deciduous.
