Strong horizontal branching that resembles the spreading roof line of a pagoda creates an attractive winter silhouette while bare, and a soft, beautifully tiered effect when covered with dark green summer foliage. Fall foliage is generally reddish purple. Masses of tiny, white, fragrant flowers appear in early summer.
- » Truly special plant for northern landscapes, valued for its almost "oriental" horizontal branching habit
- » White flowers in spring, blue berries and purple fall color
- » Quite fussy, needs a cool, moist site with afternoon shade, also prefers acidic soil
