Moderately slow-growing evergreen shrub with an upright to rounded growth-habit, typically to 6-8’ tall x 5-8’ wide, or greater with age. Can easily be pruned to maintain a smaller size, or formed into a small, single-trunk patio tree. This vigorous, long-time landscape favorite is a mid to late-season bloomer featuring lustrous, glossy, deep-green foliage accented with exceptionally-large, showy, formal deep-red flowers appearing late-winter into mid-spring. Well-suited as an accent or foundation planting and can be grown on trellises or in containers. A popular choice for woodland or Asian themed gardens. Prefers a rich, acidic, well-drained soil, and thrives with regular watering in a filtered-sun to light-shade exposure.
