|Design Ideas||With such vivid seasonal foliage changes, put this shrub up front and center for full appreciation. Tailor made for foundation planting. Exceptional for shrub borders along fences, walls and buildings. Plant in creative open combinations with high contrast purple and black foliage shrubs for drama most of the year. Large enough to make a solid hedge to divide space within a garden or separating front yards. Leave natural to bring long term color and brightness into wild gardens against backgrounds of conifers and dark foliage evergreens. Perfectly versatile and appealing for calling attention to entries, gateways and focal points.|
|Companion Plants||Weigela (Weigela); Salvia (Salvia); Coneflower (Echinacea); Barberry (Berberis); Ninebark (Physocarpus)|
|Care||Prefers average, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established maintain evenly moist soil. Feed in early spring. Remove spent blooms to promote continued flowering. Blooms on new wood; prune before new growth begins, as needed to shape and to thin stems.|
