Quick Overview:

The star shaped bright green foliage is rather thin with a delicate texture. The leaves are held out horizontally, making a layered effect in older portions of the plant. The new foliage is a bright yellow green, with the tips of the lobes tinged in red, gradually changing to a uniform light green and darkening as the summer advances. The fall color is a striking golden yellow. Not a strong upright grower but more of a tall, bushy shrub.
