A small tree or shrub to about 18' with bronze new growth. Small, star like flowers in spring, the remaining calyx turns red and gets larger, giving you the impression the plant has red flowers in summer. Prefers full sun and ample moisture in spring and summer. Flower color can be improved by sprinkling iron sulfate around the plant drip line in spring. Frost tolerant.
