A splendid newish intro from Japan, with deep purple-red new foliage, expanding to a deep dusky purple-red-green above and red below. Leaves are fairly broad. Large lacecaps of purplish-pink fertile flowers surrounded by pale-pink ray florets in summer. Proven hardy in Continental Europe, with a slightly deeper colour in leaf than 'Gongshan'. A medium sized deciduous shrub for sun or semi-shade, not too bone dry.
