‘Midnight Marvel’ is a mound-shaped, well-branched shrub which typically reaches 4′ high and wide. It features violet-purple, maple-shaped leaves in spring and summer which reach nearly a foot long. The leaves turn a brilliant orange in fall and contrast nicely with the 9-10′ diameter carmine-red blooms which begin in midsummer and continue until frost. Each flower has a prominent and showy pale yellow tubular central staminal column. Hardy to USDA Zone 5-9.
