A wonderful form of this cold hardy variety of Silk Tassel. Winter tassels are burgundy red rather than the more common gray/silver. 4" tassels appear in February and are effective for months. The stems of this handsome evergreen shrub are burgundy as well. To 8' tall in 5 years for well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Extremely tolerant of dry conditions in summer. Light watering will speed growth. This is a derivation of a hybrid between two west coast natives Garrya elliptica x Garrya fremontii. It is hardier to cold than the species Garrya elliptica- so is good to try in cold gardens.
