The spring and summer foliage is pure green. At the very beginning of autumn the leaves are coloured in different shades of bright red and orange. These tints last several weeks, until mid-November. Then the leaves turn brown. Being marcescent, they stay all winter long.
The flowers in form of yellow catkins appear in March.
This charming selection is of rapid growth, close to this type of plants. It is ovoid-shaped but the variety tolerates pruning very well and can therefor be grown in a trimmed hedge.
ROCKHAMPTON RED 'Lochglow' is noticeable from far in the autumn and adds a flamboyant and bright note, be it in rows or in hedges.
