Why We Love It

'Twisting Red' displays spiralling foliage in a bold burgundy hue.

These new shoots sit above older, glossy green leaves, creating an eye-catching ombre effect.

Small white flowers appear during spring.

How to Plant

Grow this plant in moist, well-drained soil of an acidic pH. Allow access to full sun or partial shade.

Into the Ground
  1. Water your plant well.
  2. Dig through the soil to loosen it.
  3. Make a hole twice as wide as the rootball.
  4. Place your plant in the hole. Make sure that the top of the roots are visible and level with the surface of the soil.
  5. Fill in the hole with soil, firming to remove air pockets.
  6. Firm the soil and water well.
Into a Pot
  1. Cover the drainage holes in your pot using stones or pieces of broken pot.
  2. Add the compost to your container.
  3. Gently loosen the roots of your plant and place it in the container.
