Flowers best in full sun but will tolerate part shade conditions. Shrub habit is multi-stemmed with a rounded compact habit. Fragrant flowers appear before leaves in spring and last 10-14 days. Leaves vary from bright yellow, orange, red, to purple in fall with colors often combined on the same leaf.
