Comments: Some growers prune to reduce growth about 25% to promote more new growth, which produoces the brightest red color. Pruning may eliminate flowers, but this is not great loss as they are not very showy. Blue-whitish fruits in summer attract birds that eat them. This selection is grown for its nicely variegated foliage and bright red twigs in winter.
