Add interest to your landscape with this hardy shrub.

Its large, dark green leaves turn mahogany-red in fall. An introduction by the U.S. Arboretum. Plant in partial shade to full sun as an informal hedge or accent plant. Zones 5-8.

The stems are very strong and hold these panicles upright creating a spectacular sight. The foliage turns a fiery scarlet and burgundy in the Fall while the cinnamon exfoliating bark give Winter interest. Spectacular anywhere it's planted. A very high bud count. Does well in dry soils.
