Quick Overview:

There is nothing else on the planet like Carolina SweetheartTM. A carnival of color in early summer as new leaves emerge. It starts out with pink flowers in the spring. Then the new leaves emerge purple, but over time, gain various shades of white, green, and hot pink. It makes coleus look drab in comparison. Eventually, the leaves turn green in the summer.  It was developed as a collaborative project by NC State University and Star Roses and Plants Nursery.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Part shade is best in hot summer climates. Performs best in moderately fertile soils with regular and consistent moisture. Avoid wet or poorly drained soils. Since this tree does not transplant well, it should be planted when young and left undisturbed.
