The foliage emerges in spring bronzy green with electric pink veining, like a pair of pink fishnet stockings has been wrapped around each leaf! Each unique leaf is held on purple petioles and as the season progresses the pink veining color drains back down into the petioles leaving beautiful emerald green veining in its place. However, while the foliage still has its pink coloring early in the season, complementary purple buds form and open to bright mauve pink flowers with contrasting chartreuse nectarines in the center. They turn deeper pink and take on green tones as they mature.
We sell this years stock in quart pots – a bit smaller than usual.
