I love this plant in the winter when the lovely red twigs stand out against the snow! The old branches are less red, so thin out the center branches every few years. Flowers are insignificant.

(I saw this var. on another site where it was listed as compact and rounded. However, this is the information on the nursery tag. Sorry if it is wrongly named.)
