In autumn the bright green leaves turn vibrant shades of orange and yellow. This is a lovely shrub for the woodland garden or as a specimen in the shrub border.

Garden Care: Minimal pruning is required. Remove misplaced dead or diseased branches in late spring and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
