Little Flame® is a fine improvement on the variety 'Goldflame', being neater and more compact in growth, very solid and resistant to powdery mildew. It's particularly admired for its glossy leaves of changing colours. In spring, the tips of the young shoots are bronze-orange. The leaves become yellow, then a golden green throughout the summer, acquiring beautiful coppery-orange tints in autumn. Its carmine rose flowers appear in umbels in summer.
Pruning is recommended after flowering to encourage a second flowering in autumn and a fresh, glossy foliage.
