I found one that I want called 'Dynamite', I have its spot picked out, but doing this landscape slow to make sure it all goes where it is going to stay. It is a beautiful dark red. They didn't used to be hardy in our zone 6 in PA, but now they are, I see them everywhere.

Wow Jade. Awesome. You will have to share cuttings when it gets well established;) Did you find it at a chain store?

It won't be arriving to my yard until next year, I am still in the planning stages of that part of the yard. It is available at Lowes, I know that, I saw it there.

Thanks,
I will go check our Lowe's. I know they had white , purple and fushia this spring. I hope the 2 cuttings I have will do well then in about a year I can share

I have never tried to propagate them, as they have never been hardy for me before. I am running out of space for my addiction inside. Don't know what hubby is going to do with me. Of course, he does encourage it.

Hey, off topic, but I learned a new portuguese word the other night...estufa, which means oven or stove in Spanish, it means greenhouse in portuguese, how funny is that? You just never see a greenhouse down here.
