Notes:  Picked as a Great Plant Picks in 2004.  One of the showiest fall colored shrub, yet is still infrequently encountered in gardens.  Plant in an area that is mostly shady with a few hours of direct sun. The fall display has colors ranging from green - blue - red - yellow.  When the leaves overlap you can get two tones, one color on the outside and another where they were touching.
