We may be far from the prairie, but this spectacular specimen is right at home here in any New England landscape. It's got what it takes to stop you in your tracks with dense, rounded, carefree form, excellent disease resistance, and amazing bright fuchsia buds that will become clear deep red/pink fragrant flowers before your very eyes in early May complementing the unusual purple new growth that is just emerging. Mature leaves are eye catching, too with red tinged veins and petioles against a deep reddish-green leaf body that turns an attractive orange in autumn. Small, persistent red berries complete the picture on this stunning plant that will thrive in full sun
