Also lends a fiery hue to otherwise deep-green shade gardens. Plant as an individual to appreciate the unique foliage texture and leaf shape, or in a cluster to intensify its impact in the garden. Not as prim and proper as the traditional Hydrangea, it is a natural in the woodland scene and among rangy natives.|
