An impressive, high-impact evergreen shrub for year-round enjoyment. Deep red buds contrast nicely with the handsome, deep green leaves. Mature plants bloom early to mid-season with large, glowing red flowers. Similar to 'Grace Seabrook', but with larger stature. An excellent choice for a foundation plant or hedge.

Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.
