Very vibrant, does it stay small though?

yes i belive so, i have had it 3 years, and it has spread a little, but stayed the same hieght, but i think there are taller ones. you do need acid soil to be sucessful though i think. this has been a bit unwell though, had rust on it this autumn, so i have cut back hard, hoping it will be back with a vengance in the spring.

Thanks for doing such a great job with the names. Makes it easier to find. This is in fall color I see. Very nice.

thanks, i try to keep up with the names ... but if i am honest there are still quite a few i am yet to find myself lol and yes this is the autumn colours all though it has lovely coloured leaves all year round really, the new growth is a coppery or yellowy colouring then it turns mid green and then red in the autumn,
