Hardy to Zone 4 this narrow upright growing shrub can reach heights of 10 to 15 feet. (Not as large in cold climates) With medium green leaves,1-3” long and .5-1.25” wide, arranged alternately along its slender stems. The yellow, orange, and red fall color are perhaps one of this plants best features. A slow grower this shrub has yellow, pink or light orange 1/2” long flower with a distinctive red vein (source of it’s common name)

Growing best in acidic, well drained soils this shrub is a great companion to both rhododendron and azalea plantings. Partial to full sun and perhaps slight shade and with great resistance to disease and insects this plant is a great addition to any garden.
