These are rich deep green and quite glossy with several deep dissections. The stem bear the flowers a little later, these are around 2 cms wide, creamy white and have five petals with yellowish anthers. In autumn the leaves turn a rich crimson red and persist for several weeks. Good over the front of raised beds or walls etc.
