Product Details
A fascinating genus of plants from the Berberidaceae family. This species is evergreen but the older growth has attractive autumn colours before the new growth rises in early spring shortly after which, the flowers emerge. Leaves are flushed strong reddish-bronze when young but colour up to a fresh green with a strong reddish tint when mature. Flowers are borne in short racemes, are a red and creamy lemon yellow in colour, and hang pendulously from upright stems. Differs from the species in that the flower is maybe slightly broader in the petal.
