A NEW introduction with unique spring foliage. Upright, open form. Foliage ranges from lime green to brilliant gold with fall shades of coral, orange, and red. A great compliment to the purple smoke bush or other bold-coloured plants.
Single specimen, group or mass in shrub borders or sunny areas around the home. Long-lasting summer smoke display makes this a striking accent plant. Also may be used as an informal hedge or screen (a smokescreen as it were).
Key to Success: Fertilize in spring
Prune yearly in Spring to maintain desired shape. Use triple mix and liquid transplanter fertilizer for planting success.
