From a Ozzie and Jitsko Johnson visit to Japan, comes this rare red-orange flowered paper bush has the same wonderful shape, stainy green foliage of the other paper bushes. The white buds form in the fall and open to brilliant orange red in spring (March-April)... guaranteed to have the neighbors scratch their heads... in addition to whatever they normally scratch.
