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: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Wonderful, white, lacecap-like flowers in late-spring, maturing to pink, and toothed, deeply veined, dark green leaves, turning red-purple in autumn. The horizontally tiered branches of this deciduous shrub make an excellent feature for a sunny shrub or mixed border. Best on fertile, moist, well-drained soil, it's particularly suitable for 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.
