  • Evergreen, dwarf shrub, grows to 0.3-0.6 m (1-2 feet) tall and has intricate dissected leaves which give it a very lacy, almost fern-like, look. It is slower growing and much smaller than the species yet it still has the same bamboo cane-like stems and foliage colors. New foliage is reddish in color and during the fall the leaves turn an orange, bronze or purplish red. Pinkish-white flowers bloom in clusters at the ends of branches in the late spring and summer.
  • This selection was imported from Japan and named by Ray Yoshimura of the San Gabriel Nursery in California.. .(San Marcos Growers)
