Compact, rounded form. Variegated green-white foliage and striking red twigs which stand out in winter. Yellow-white spring blooms followed by clusters of blue-grey ornamental berries and purple-red fall foliage. Specimen/accent plant.
Prefers a moist, well drained, slightly acidic soil. Feed in spring with an all purpose tree and shrub fertilizer before new growth begins. Little pruning is necessary, although pruning to ground level when old to rejuvenate fresh new growth is recommended. Prune from spring to fall to remove broken or damaged limbs. Tolerates both dry conditions and some standing water.
