Design Ideas True to its name, this plant tends to vine when planted in a shady spot, its multiple stems sprawling beautifully through companions. In fall, it splashes color in a woodsy understory and looks brilliant planted with dark conifers. Planted in the sun, it grows into a small, airy tree. Use several to make an arching, shady bower. Espalier against a shady north wall to showcase its attractive structure during winter.
Flower Color Purple
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Likes to associate with evergreens and conifers in the bright shade under their canopy. Plant with Camellia (Camellia japonica), Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo), Blueberry and Kousa Dogwood (Cornus kousa). Ideal with showy perennials 'Rheinland', 'Deutschland', and 'Fanal' Astilbe (Astilbe x arendsii). Underplant with Hosta and Fern.
Care Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
