Gulf Stream is a hardy, evergreen medium shrub with graceful fern-like foliage. The elegant foliage changes colour with the seasons from lime green in spring to bright red in winter. This effect is welcomed in climates where creating added colour can be difficult. The dense compact growth of Gulf Stream makes for an outstanding border, ornamental or as a feature in containers. Gulf Stream will tolerate a wide range of soil types and climates; from full sun or shade to frost.
