A neat cultivar with larger and more rounded leaves. These are a striking red when young, maturing to green with age. Small fragrant flowers may occasionally appear in spring, followed by black berries. Clip back a couple of times during the growing season to help maintain a bushy dense habit, and a new flush of red-tinted leaves.
