Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: well-drained soil Rate of growth: slow to average Flowering period: April to June Hardiness: fully hardy Dazzling red foliage with a narrow yellow edge, puts on a magnificent display from spring to autumn. Useful for creating contrast in the mixed or shrub border, this low-growing deciduous shrub produces small pink flowers from late spring or early summer, followed by crimson berries in autumn. The foliage looks wonderful in ‘hot’ planting schemes, and it also adds pizzazz to pots. Tolerant of partial shade, it is best planted in a sunny spot if you want really vibrant leaf colour. Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Where some pruning is required, cut back in autumn or winter, after the appearance of the autumn fruits.
