Who's ever heard of fireworks in late April? Your landscape will experience those fireworks and sparks will fly as the masses of star-like flowers featured by this selection explode in a burst of vivid fuchsia buds, opening to radiant purple. 'Leonard Messel' is so anxious to put on a show for us that its blooms arrive before the foliage in a staggering display of springtime coloration against a rounded array of gray barked branches. This explosive show takes place each year on a low branched specimen that is upright when young, but rounds in form as it ages. Plant in sun for full effect and give it some space to spread and dazzle you through the years.
