It grows somewhat taller (to 5' tall ) in the warm winter climates of the South (USDA Zones 8-9).

Ovate, glossy, dark green leaves (to 1.25" long) turn purplish-bronze in autumn. A hybrid between A. x grandiflora and A. shumannii introduced in 1911 by Edward Goucher of the United States Department of Agriculture..
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."
