seeking name for this red plant

faybioAugust 20, 2013

My landlord is growing this beautiful red plant next to the house, but she is unaware of its name. I'm interested in cloning/propagating this plant if possible, but first want to research it's background. Can anyone ID? Boston area, fwiw.

Extremely easy from cuttings. Roots readily in water or growing medium.
