Elegant bold, rich red blooms that sends out bloom after bloom from spring all the way until fall with reliably gorgeous glossy, dark green foliage that deepens to a saturated purple bronze in winter. Makes perfect for a low-hedge, foundation planting, mass planting, accent, or container plant. Plant it in front of taller shrubs with contrasting foliage or bloom color for a dynamic display.
- Sun: Needs at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun followed by partial shading
- Size: 3 ft tall and wide
- Hardiness USDA Zones are from 6 to 10
- Very low maintenance. Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. Consequently, this allows them to develop deep roots, which will help ensure their long-term success. They are able to access more nutrients and have an improved capability of dealing with droughts.
Plants will be shipped semi-bare-root (with little soil) from December to April. As the plants are dormant (sleeping), it is perfectly safe to send them bare-root. Winter is the safest and the best time to ship plants.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
