A narrow, upright-growing shrub with small red leaves that turn a ruby red in autumn. Will reach 5 to 6 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide in ten years. Makes an excellent accent plant. Tolerant to deer and drought.
Thrives in average, well-drained soil; avoid poorly drained, wet sites. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune young plants in late winter to promote dense new growth.
