Red new stems really stand out in Winter. Can be pruned and used in hedges.

PLANTING

Sunny - partially shaded location, medium moist, medium rich soil. Can be planted near waters and places where the upper level of the ground water is near the soil surface.

CARE

Prune hard back in Springs to encourage strong new growth. IV - first pruning - cut back hard about 30-50 cm above ground level, repeat till VII. It can be tamed with pruning, limiting the height around 1-1,5 m. If you are growing it for the flowers and fruit then you should keep pruning to a minimum.
