Recent cultivar with unusual golden or greenish yellow foliage all summer. The leaves are tinted red when they first open in spring and in autumn they turn vivid coral-pink, orange and red. Buff-yellow smoky flowers in June and July.

Any reasonable, well drained soil. Best foliage colour in full sun. Thrives well in areas with warm, dry summers.
