An underappreciated yet valuable addition to the diversity of broadleaf evergreens that get us excited. Narrow, willow-like leaves emerge in spring infused with heavy plum and burgundy tones before maturing to rich deep green. Glowing yellow cheerful blossoms give extra accent in spring. The strong growing, rounded plants top out 6’ in height with maturity. At home in bright shade in a location that is free from winter’s strong, drying winds.
