    The reddish-purple leaves, which are heavily marbled with pink and white, are perhaps the most striking feature of this deciduous shrub. It does however also produce small, red-tinted, pale yellow flowers in mid- to late spring and later in the year, glossy red berries. It makes a great specimen plant for a well-drained sunny border and should be clipped each year in autumn or winter to keep the colouring at its best.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Where pruning is required, cut back in autumn or winter, after the appearance of the autumn fruits
