Classic color in the shade garden!�'Winter Glow' provides that in shades�of�bronze, pink, scarlet,�and burgundy�! Not only is the species B. cordifolia fascinating and useful in itself, but this cultivar adds even more extraordinary color to an already very attractive and useful plant.
The thick foliage,�bright green until�turning glowing shades of bronze and scarlet in the fall, iis striking,�especially in the bleak winter landscape, when little color except gray and brown is present in the garden.
The color changes on these large, leathery, evergreen leaves are only one of the merits of 'Winter Glow.'� It also blooms, often twice a year! It can be relied upon for a good show of rosy-pink blooms, held just above the foliage, in spring. But often it tosses in an autumn encore as well!
Both the blooms and the leaves make long-lasting�cutflowers, though you will love the color so much in the partly shaded border that you may have trouble cutting even a little bit. No need to fret, though�
this plant has plenty more where that came from!
'Winter Glow' is just 12 to 15 inches high and 12 inches wide. But it makes a far bigger impression than its size would suggest. Deer and rabbits leave it alone, dry shade and coastal spray do not bother it, and in general it is impervious to changes in soil and weather.�
Grow 'Winter Glow' among your Hostas, Ferns, and Lamium. It is a good companion to other perennials as well as shrubs in the border.�Zones 3-8.
