I planted this shrub last spring. We had a terrible drought last summer which killed many young shrubs. This is planted in a sunny dry spot that gets lots of wind. The blooms this spring were just gorgeous. They were an electric neon deep fushia and really stood out against the dark green needles of the neighboring spruce.
