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 to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Very pretty, white flushed pink lacecap-like flowers appear on the tiered branches of this conical, deciduous shrub in early summer. Multi-stemmed, but more upright in habit than the species, it is perfect for the shrub border where space is at a premium. In autumn the leaves will take on good fiery colours before they fall providing another season of interest.

  • 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.
