Aurea *

Bright lilac pink flowers, August-November, with straw yellow foliage in summer, deepening to coral in winter and spring. Susceptible to winter damage if planted in heavy ground, frost pockets or cold windy aspects. Found near Wareham, Dorset, England. Habit is 10” wide x 24” wide.  Will revert to green, so pick off any green branches that appear.  Does very well in our sandy soil.  Nearly frozen out at 5F.
