Beautiful foliage there, leaves are often as colourful as the flowers.

That's true Janey,it's a pity theres only new growth in Spring,it really is striking.
From what I remember of the flowers (only 2 in it's first year) the foliage is better lol,(pale yellow if I remember rightly)

Have you had any fruit off this yet, we have one which my daughter gave me two years ago as a present, the foliage is lovely and the plant huge but we have never seen a flower on it.
