    This has to be one of the best large shrubs for autumn colour with its large leaves that can be entire with a heart shape, have one lobe looking  like a mitten or a lobe on both sidesDSC_0060. So it is a great conversation piece as well as a great plant.

    It comes from Asia and prefers an aspect out of the worst heat and would be a first rate companion to Camellias and Rhododendrons et. al.

    It has small mustard yellow flowers on the bare stems in late winter and the leaves in autumn turn a glowing yellow with a tinge of apricot which will shine in the low autumn sun.

    Being hard to strike it is rarely available in Australia so I am pleased to have a few in 20cm. pots at the moment for $49.50. Be quick!
