    This compact evergreen shrub is primarily grown for its handsome foliage, which if grown in full sun, is a fiery shade of red when it first emerges in spring, before turning a rich green as it ages. The conical clusters of white flowers it produces in midsummer are also pretty and add further to the plant's appeal. A good choice for patio pots where it will provide year-round interest, it also makes an interesting (and colourful) addition to the front of a shrub border.

    Please note: terracotta pot not supplied.

  • Garden care: In mid or late spring lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant.
