Additional Information

This is a deciduous variety which will lose its leaves overwinter to get the best display of vibrant flowers on bare stems. In spring these will re-emerge for the following years growth. Frost hardy (will need winter protection in colder areas). They can tolerate temperatures down to -5C, but in colder areas it is best to plant them against a sunny, south facing wall. Apply a generous layer of mulch in autumn and cut away any damaged or crossing branches in early spring.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
