Scheer of Connecticut, this cultivar grows

inches in height and 15 inches in width. the leaves are smooth
and of average substance. Pale purple flowers bloom in August.
The originator made the following
comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "A small, fast
growing plant, Cherry Tart pops out of the ground a crisp,
bright chartreuse and heats up with the weather, getting
brighter leaves until it glows yellow, with deep, lipstick red
petioles that atypically darken as the leaves brighten up. This
is one red/yellow combo that doesn't fade in the heat! Give it a
few hours of direct sun for best color. Available from Naylor
Creek Nursery "
