If it is about 3-4 ft tall, it could be a hibiscus moscheutos, it blooms late Sept-Oct, check and look at the leaves, I had one called Lord Baltimore, that had similar leaves, they are coming up with newer varieties every year, they love sun and moisture.

Not a hibiscus, looks like a coppiced shrub, a species i am not familiar with. I looked up viburnums, liquidamber and a few acers, nothing matched. I hope someone can come up with a name, sure is pretty.

Thanks Elaine, I did try contacting the head gardener at the japanese garden but she didn't come back to me. Longing to know what this plant's name is so I can source some for myself and clients! The red colour stems are so beautiful with the pink-red tones in the leaves.. Best wishes, Judi.. :-)
