This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: April to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Offering both colourful foliage and an abundance of early summer flowers, this decorative shrub is a showstopper! At the start of the season the leaves are green - and they offer a beautiful backdrop for the pink trumpet-shaped flowers. As these start to fade in midsummer, the leaves start to take on a bronze flush, and this intensifies as summer turns to autumn, so by the end of the season the foliage has turned a rich, fiery red. It's a great shrub for adding intense colour, but keep in mind that while this plant can tolerate a little shade, the colour is at its best when its grown in full sun.

  • Garden care: Once established prune each year in mid-summer after flowering, removing one or two of the older stems to the base and cutting back the flowered stems to strong shoots below the spent flowers.
