Comments: Small tree or large shrub generally attaining a height of about 10 feet in as many years. In winter it has spectacular bright salmon-red shoots, which are its chief asset. In summer the green leaves are edged in red and change to nice golden yellow in autumn. The bark can be outstanding in winter and is better with high amounts of sunlight.
