A low spreading shrub with bright orange new growth, that ages to burgundy. The branches are slender, spiny and small. Small yellow flowers in spring are followed by small bright red berries in fall. Performs well in most soils, as long as they are well-drained. Bright orange new growth emerges in spring, turning burgundy during the summer. Plant in full sun for the best color.
