Shrub from 2 - 3'. Proving to be hardy in our garden for a number of years now. Arching habit with 4" leaves starting off reddish then maturing to gold. In late summer each branch is studded with large conspicuous 3 - 4" wine red bracts, sporting pink flowers and followed by bead-like berries that turn from sea green to glossy black. Plant in full sun to part shade in average soil.
