Still not something that grabs me up close, but it loves the sun from a
distance of 15-40 feet away and with the light area in the falls really
lights up. When the sun is directly on it looks more red than in the photo.
LUMIERE D'AUTOMNE fades considerably in the sun but has the trick of staying
attractive throughout the life of the bloom despite that. A lot in this
color range fade quickly to awful, unattractive colors. This isn't fading
much that I can detect.
