Delicate clusters of white flowers are some of the first to appear in the spring, then plumy-red leaf buds unfurl into fuzzy roundedfoliage. Small dark red fruit follows in summer. Fall colour ranges from orange to rust. Tolerates most soils, use in woodland areas or native plant gardens.
Best in woodland, naturalized or native plant gardens, especially with dark or shaded backdrops which tend to highlight the form, flowers and fall color of the plant. Also effective along stream banks and ponds.
