Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 2 to 3 ft. tall, 8 ft. wide.
Bloom TimeFall through Winter
Design IdeasExcellent choice for cool, shade to semi-shade settings as a colorful low hedge, espalier, or groundcover due to its short, pendulous habit. A great addition to an Asian inspired garden or in mass at the front fringe of a woodland setting. Ideal for filling a tree understory, where its glossy leaves and cool season color will add interest. This is a well-behaved shrub for planting between taller structures or along a fence line, allowed to spill over a raised planter, or from hanging baskets or pots, where its branches will gently soften the edges.
