|Lore||In the summer of 1996, Mike Farrow, owner of Holly Hill Farms in Earleville, Maryland, discovered this living gem. A ravenous beauty with a tight, compact growth habit that naturally requires minimal maintenance. An amazing array of fiery colors grace the foliage ranging from red, orange and yellow to bronzy tones, remniscent of a beautiful sunrise.|
