Mint green variegated leaves with creamy white margins become tinged with pink or red in fall. Compact and densely branched with chartreuse stems that add character to the winter landscape. A wonderful shrub for all seasons! The best stem colour is produced in full sun but tolerates partial shade. Site next to ponds for a colourful reflection or plant in mass as an eye-catching front border to a natural wooded area. Cut down the stem in late winter for a new flush of red growth. Moderate growing; reaches 4 to 5 ft. tall and wide.
