The Crimson Pygmy is a dwarf densely branched form displaying deep crimson colored foliage all season long. It has the best color when planted in full sun. It makes an excellent color contrast against green or gold leafed plants. It is a great choice for mass plantings, particularly as a low hedge or border plant. It can also be used in Japanese garden designs near water features, or in wild, natural areas of a garden.
