does Shaina green out in summer, or stay RED?
I found Shaina at a local garden center that seems a decent specimen. Except that it seemed pretty greened out as some red leaved cultivars do in sun of summer. From what I've read I thought Shaina stayed fairly red all summer. I want a decent red palmatum to plant near some cedrus deodora prostrate beauty (blue) - so red coloration is important.
At garden center the tree was in sun, but I don't know for how long, when they got it, etc. It does seem to be Shaina. Is moderate green out normal?
They only had one and I am trying to decide whether to buy it, wondering once planted and more stable whether it will retain better red; or if I should pass this one by.
