  • Rate of growth: average

    Wonderful, white, lacecap-like flowers on horizontally tiered branches in May and toothed, deeply veined, dark-green leaves, turning red-purple in autumn. This beautiful, deciduous shrub makes an excellent specimen plant for a sunny shrub or mixed border. Hardy and easy-to-grow, its distinctive, horizontal habit works particularly well in a Japanese-style garden.

  • Garden care: Keep the pruning of young plants to a minimum. Any vertical shoots that threaten to spoil the distinctive tiered shape of established plants should be cut back to their point of origin in summer after flowering.
