    Uses Notes: 

    Great foliage stunner in the landscape. Good in groupings and mass planting, perennial and shrub borders. This is a very tough plant that is ideal for difficult sites.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Adaptable to difficult situations. Withstands acidic and alkaline soils. Medium moisture, can tolerate dry conditions once established. Best if pruned immediately after blooming. Best in open areas with good air circulation to prevent foliage problems. Will benefit from a good hard pruning as a young plant. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.

    Easy to grow summer color!

    A new cross between Dart's Gold and Diabolo that flushes an attractive copper in spring and transforms to a rich red in summer. Soft pink flowers line the gently arching branches in early summer. This durable, cold-hardy plant does well in exposed sites. It was selected as the 2011 Cut Flower of the Year by the ASCFG.

    • Love the color and look of this shrub! Copper color is a highlight in my landscape. Grew well in a hot, dry summer with weekly watering. Soil conditions are not great either. Hardy plant. Can't wait to see it perform its second year.

    • After 3 years this plant has developed a black fungus and powdery mildew. I have cut it out, but it is reappearing. After some research, I have found that many others have the same problems starting at 3 years after the plant is in. Would not buy this again.

    • Can't beat the contrast of colours in the leaves and the interest of the bark. A definite show stopper!
