The color is green, and the leaves tend to look a little bit like the leaves on oak trees. Plant this shrub where it can get shade and the foliage will turn colors of bright red, orange, yellow and eventual burgundy.
The bush is perfect for planting in the garden where you need to take up some space since over time it can get rather large, and the beauty of it is a plus. The large flowers can be cut and brought inside and placed in vases to enjoy. This shrub is easy to grow and easy to care for, and you get plenty of enjoyment and color from it all year long.
