The neat mound of rich green foliage provides the ideal backdrop for tight clusters of brilliant white flowers. Foliage becomes gold, red and purple in autumn. Fantastic planted en masse, lining a walkway or as a foundation plant. Deciduous.An excellent choice for the sunny mixed border where this shrub will fit in well and show off red-purple new foliage and summer pink blooms. It also makes a fine low-growing informal hedge to plant along a drive, walkway or in a narrow planting strip.
