Having trouble with this plant. Planted in fall of 2005. Purchased at Woodsmith Store on sale, end of season. Looked good when I bought it but developed a lot of browning in first fall, and this spring (2006) it has a lot of brown spots but also some green. Hope it will green up more. Referred to as an attractive shrub with red barked, twisted branches and dark green foliage. Excellent as small informal hedge that requires little maintenance. Zone 4-8 on the Monrovia tag that came with it. Slow growing to 9 feet tall and wide. Will see how it goes.
