Just posting this for informational purposes, until I can get my hands on one of these! I can't wait to see the buds in person.

"Introduction from the Stegemans. Leaves emerge bright yellow-chartreuse on red petioles with red tips and some red brushed across the shiny backs. As the season progresses, the leaves become a golden color with a slight sheen. Fuchsia pink buds emerge in September on dark scapes and, as the cooler weather comes, the leaves are again kissed with touches of red."
