This stunning, long-flowering shrub delights gardeners with a kaleidoscope of colour from spring to autumn. White tubular flowers appear from June to August. A versatile shrub that lights up in spring with bright yellow and green leaves and in summer the foliage darkens to a deep green with a golden, creamy yellow outer edge. In autumn it changes through shades of green, yellow, orange, and red.
