    Bright lemon yellow foliage matures to lime green on a compact mounding form. Fall foliage color is orange-red on red stems. Good as a filler with green leafed plants or for mass planting.

    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.
