Luminous yellow/chartreuse foliage all season, with good red fall color. Needs protection from direct midday/afternoon sun, which can scorch the leaves. Best in light/dappled shade---in too much shade, the foliage is dark green.

Young stems turn bright red in winter.

The white spring flowers and subsequent white fruit are not especially showy.

Grows 6' tall and wide.

Developed at the University of Minnesota, released in 2001.

While I LOVE this plant it did grow quite a bit bigger than predicted. Like twice as large.

I'm hoping to root a cutting and move the plant to another part of my yard where it has a little more room to grow.

Love the leaf color, love the winter interest.
