Beautiful white flowers in mid-summer are followed by stunning fall foliage. Very dense and compact in growth. Late spring/early summer bloomer, the mildly fragrant flower clusters arch and spray above the foliage creating a dazzling display. Apple green foliage is somewhat rounded and finely toothed along its edges. This selection is named for its wine-colored, persistent winter foliage.
