|Design Ideas||Plant beside a stream or pond where its cascading branches will look superb. Use the extremely fine texture and reddish hue of its leaves to contrast areas of coarser green plants. Beautiful above a large rock or wall where the limbs can spill over. A great specimen plant for the woodsy landscape. Keep away from full sun in hot summer regions.|
|Companion Plants||Azalea (Azalea); Hosta (Hosta); Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa); Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Astilbe (Astilbe)|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil; shelter from drying winds. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures in hot summer areas. Mulch to keep root zone cool. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply slow-release fertilizer in early spring.|
