This is an exciting, colorful new plant from our trials. The 1-2 year old stems on this fast-grower are a graduating yellow orange red color late summer through winter. It looses its leaves late fall to fully reveal its colorful branches. Coral Snap™ is hardy and seedless in our trials so far and should grow to 20 ft. or more tall with a width of 12 ft. or more. Coral Snap™ will grow in almost any soil type except very dry. It will thrive best in a moist site with full sun. In our trials, it has grown 12-14 ft. tall in 2 years. It is great for windbreaks due to its dense branching. Plant at a 6 ft. spacing for a colorful screen.
