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.LisaMissouriUnited States2 years ago

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.TerriCanada5 years ago

Can't beat the contrast of colours in the leaves and the interest of the bark. A definite show stopper!BarbOntarioCanada6 years ago
