Maintenance Notes

This is a very low-maintenance plant that rarely needs pruning. If you wish to prune it, do so in early spring. Year-old and younger stems will show some red color in winter, but its slow-growing habit means that it should not be pruned heavily, as it will take a while for it to recover. 

Tolerates some shade, as well as wet soils.

Uses Notes

This versatile shrub works well as a mass planting, for naturalistic or native plantings, and for a unique specimen. It makes an interesting subject in a container, and can also be used as a cut branch.
