This new introduction from Bylands Nursery in British Columbia has attractive chartreuse foliage and is a compact selection growing 4-5’ tall. It has good sun and heat tolerance, retaining bright leaf color throughout summer without scorching. New leaves are tinged with bronze and the stems have a rich red hue early in the season. Fall foliage becomes a rainbow of purple, red, yellow and orange. In winter the stems turn glossy scarlet red.
Very little pruning necessary due to compact form, prune when dormant during the late fall or early spring. Prefers moist, well drained soil. Has good sun and heat tolerance.
