Description:

Probably the best Cockspur for Autumn coloration - the foliage turns to all shades of orange and red in October, a stunning sight! The broad, almost glossy leaves give a dense background for the white flowers (open in May) and for the red fruits later. Drought tolerant, large shrub, ideal for bonsai and not too fussy to soil conditions.
