Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Bright yellow flowers mature to long-lasting, cherry-red berries that create quite a color-play against dark-red leaves. Midnight Glow has improved breeding traits that feature a compact plant with color-drenched, ornamental berries. This new rust-resistant selection is certain to add a splash of color to your fall garden and decorating palette. The maraschino cherry like fruits glow in the sunlight and evening light, like little red lanterns on each shrub. And don’t forget to plant enough so you can use the cuts in your fall arrangements!
