- CommentsBeauty for all seasons. Prolific flower production in the Spring. Blooms are very clear and bright, never muddy, new foilage is an attractive purple-maroon, becomes reddish-green and then red, orange and purple in the Fall. Red fruit is persistent into late Fall, even Winter- that is if the birds don't eat them by then. No littering problems, as birds relish the fruit and will eat it directly off the tree.
