I got the Souvenir de Bonn while visiting relatives in Wisc. I wasn't too hopeful that it would do well. It has survived the East TN drought (I did water it some). I'm very impressed with it's constant flowers and the varigated leaves. I'm excited to see how large it will get and if I can propogate it with cuttings.

Tall flowering maple with coral orange flowers, resembles hanging Chinese lanterns. Foliage is maple like and deeply lobed, grey green with white margins. Tempermental in the ground, have had better success as a potted plant. Move it to protection in the winter from the icy winds. Plant recovers in the Spring and again is leafed out and blooming. Can reach upto 8-10 feet.
