Double Play Candy Corn

Double Play Candy Corn is a powerhouse of color from the red foliage emerging in spring to summer's brilliant yellow and blazing orange in the fall. Oh, and let's not forget the purple blooms in late spring to early summer. Throw in a compact, mounding habit, easy to care for with no pruning and you have one amazing plant.

Use in borders, mass plantings in the landscape or as a specimen plant to draw attention to a particular area.
