A wonderful shrub to add interest to any garden; small clusters of yellow-white spring flowers are followed by white or blue tinged berries. The beauty of this plant is the brightly coloured stems that are revealed in winter once the pretty lightly variegated leaves have fallen. Plant in masses for dramatic effect and prune in spring for the best stems.
Height and spread 1.5-2.5 metres if left unpruned.
Plant in moist but well drained, sunny/partial shade position.
