“Firepower” is a compact, evergreen shrub grown for its colourful foliage. The leaves are yellow-green in summer then turn orange and red through autumn and winter. The foliage is complemented with small, white flowers in summer which are followed by bright red fruits. It typically grows to 60 cm tall and the same wide, performing best when planted in full sun on a well-drained, sheltered site. It is tolerant of frost, cool climates, some wind, short periods of dry, and coastal environments. “Firepower” is a tidy plant that is ideal for rock gardens, mass planting either as a groundcover or on a bank, maintaining in a container, adding to a border or mixed planting, or including anywhere vibrant colour is desired.
