what colour flame of the forest



I assume you are referring to Pieris japonica 'Forest Flame'? If so it is an evergreen shrub with mid green leaves, new growth in spring is a bright red it also produces small white flowers. Needs to be in acid soil, so may need to be planted in a pot with ericaceous compost if you garden's soil is above about pH 6.0 - 6.5. The link below is to my one that I took recently
