Info

Stunning leaves, nearly brick-red infused with cooper-orange, and more olive-green tones in summer. Very nice. Selected from L. ixiodes 'Taupo Sunset' by Phillip Smith of Taupo, New Zealand, and introduced to the United States only in the past few years. Leaves are stiff and erect leaves, to 18" tall, gradually forming clumps to 1-2'. Clusters of 3-petaled, white flowers rise above the foliage in spring and produce attractive yellow-orange seed pods. Sun to part shade in well-drained soil with occasional summer water. Frost hardy to a bit below 10 °F, just below USDA zone 8. Good in containers and particularly handsome when backlit. PP18 486.
