Quick Overview:

A broad, upright shrub. The large, rounded leaves emerge grey-purple in spring, changing to blue-grey at maturity. It has large, airy clusters of small, yellow-green flowers in the spring. The foliage turns bright reds in the fall. It needs well-drained soil and does best in full sun. It responds well to hard pruning.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soils except wet, poorly-drained ones. Prefers somewhat infertile loams, but performs well in poor, rocky soils. Sharp drainage is essential. Plants have shallow fibrous root systems. If bloom is desired, prune very lightly in early spring only as needed. If bloom is not a concern, stems may be cut back hard in early spring to a framework to induce growth of vigorous new shoots with larger than normal leaves.
