“wakehurst”

Description~ This upright, evergreen shrub has brilliant red young leaves that matures to a beautiful green color. These green leaves can be accompanied by small, drooping, white flowers. The flowers will be quite fragrant.

Cultivation~ These shrubs are best in well-drained, moist, acidic, organic, fertile soil. They should be placed in full sun or partial shade with shelter from cold winds.

Thoughts~ The red leaves are quite beautiful and I love the green color that they turn into. However, these shrubs seem like they’d be hard to take care of because of all of the soil properties that are needed for it to excel in growth. The flowers that grow on these shrubs are also really pretty too. I wonder whatt they smell like?
