Design Ideas A small cold hardy accent tree is an ideal spring specimen for both close and as long range focal points. Best set off against a background of tall, dark evergreens. Attractive at close range in conjunction with foundation plantings aligned for window appreciation of unique foliage and birds feeding on winter fruit. Vital to all wild gardens and very attractive in mixed woodlands or as small groves to compound wildlife value. Makes a good lawn tree, but best kept clear of paving, as dark fruit may stain concrete.

Foliage Color Purple
Companion Plants Lilac (Syringa); Lavender (Lavandula); Carpet Bugle (Ajuga); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia)
CARE
Care Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed before new spring growth appears. Thin heavy crops in early summer to prevent breakage or damage. Prune as needed to remove dead or damaged wood, or maintain smaller size.
