At present we are not positive if we have the true fulgens but one called ‘Red Dragon’ is probably pretty close.  It was brought into Australia for me from New Zealand where they had lost the name.   It has a rather distinctive terminal bud.

 ’Red Dragon’ is about a metre high, orangey red, not drought hardy.  In moist cool areas it might nearly get to 2m.   It is not a real hardy plant in Australia but I do like it and try to always have it in stock.
