This plant is a truly wonderful, In Spring, the new shoots are bronze and pink in colour before aging to green with white markings. Makijaz also puts on a show in the autumn with its burgundy evergreen foliage.It is a perfect plant as a filler in the garden or as a feature on its own, we’ve seen it teamed up as a wonderful back drop to brightly coloured Midwinter Fire Dogwoods, which makes for a magnificent combination in the winter garden.
