A very hardy and colorful accent shrub with bright golden foliage that fades to soft a yellow in the summer. Creamy white spring flowers yield ornamental berries in midsummer. Brilliant red fall foliage drops to reveal flaming orange-red stems for winter drama. Versatile and easy to grow. Deciduous.
