Vibrant clusters of small, true-red flowers are provided by this medium-sized, deciduous shrub from summer into the fall. Its mildew-resistant foliage unfurls maroon in the spring and ages to a rich-green. Best planted in sunny spots with well-draining, moderately fertile soil. Attractive cinnamon-colored, exfoliating bark provides winter interest.
