The "rainbow" foliage is very original: green with a wide yellow border turning dark pink during the summer. The relatively wide leaves keep their variegation throughout the growing season thus contrasting with the red wood; they do not burn in the sun.
It's shape is compact and well branched, its growth average.
The trumpet shaped pale pink flowers are abundant in May - June. They are sterile so don't produce any seed or fruit.
This cultivation is particularly interesting from spring to autumn, thanks to its attractive foliage and its moderate dimensions are an asset for small areas.
Only light balance pruning after the flowering season is recommended.
