Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

Matcha Ball™ forms a perfect round ball of pretty fern-like foliage in a fresh shade of green. When the foliage first emerges in very early spring there is a hint of color in the leaves and petioles that ranges from red to orange-peach in color, ultimately maturing to green. Unlike Sem, Matcha Ball™ sparsely blooms and doesn’t develop suckers so it maintains a tight round form throughout the growing season. Fall color is yellow. Prefers moist, well-drained organic soil. Tolerates full sun to some light shade. Discovered by Denis Levac of Québec, Canada.

Height: 2-3′. Spread: 3-4′. Shape: Rounded. Exposure: Full Sun. Foliage: Green. Fall Foliage: Yellow. Zone: 3-7.
