This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.



  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: tolerant of a wide range of well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: quite fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A splendid plant with green leaves that turn a rich copper in autumn. As a tree it is only suited to large gardens or parks, grown as specimens in the lawn. However, it does make a superb hedge, retaining the brown leaves through winter and only loosing them when the new foliage appears in spring. It will make a lovely formal hedge that also acts as an excellent windbreak.

  • Garden care: Trim as a hedge in August but any renovative pruning needs to be done in early spring. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
