||Bright red to deep maroon, turning Dark Red in summer.
||Excellent for narrow spaces, entryways, borders, hedges, urban garden.
||Part sun/part shade. Important to think about light exposure: Too much light can damage delicate leaves. Too little light, and some of the more colorful varieties will take on an attractive greenish tone, but not the brilliant fall red/purple colors. This delicate variety will fare better in part shade.
||Moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Prefers consistent moisture: Mulch will help retain moisture. Don't let soil dry out, nor become waterlogged.
