|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.|

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.|
