Dwarf, neat and compact with rich burgundy-red spiny foliage and sprays of tiny yellow blooms in spring on thorny branches. Foliage is a deeper red in fall accented by shiny red ornamental berries which persist over winter.
Plant in moist, well-drained soil. Water regularly as needed. Feed in early spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to the new growth. Prune in spring for more compact growth.
