CARE
Care Easily grown in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune back 1/3 of the stems annually to promote dense spring growth.
HISTORY
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.
