Chelsea Flower Plant of the Year, 2015
It is no surprise that this gorgeous, eye catching new variety won the most prestigeous award at Chelsea, it has so much to offer. A structured, tiered shape is complemented with upright , hydrangea-like, white pink flowers from pink buds. The flowers in May/June are followed by rosy red berries that turn to black, then the fresh green leaves take on shades of purple and red in the autumn. Hardy, deciduous. Grows in most fertile, free draining soil in sun/ part shade. A real stunner!

Add good compost to your garden soil when planting, then mulch each autumn/winter. Prune unwanted, upright shoots from the tiered branches.
