Incendiary indeed, beginning its display in autumn with a beautiful display of orange/yellow foliage before it falls to reveal the yellow and orange upright stems.

Bright green leaves appear in spring contrasting spectacularly with the now dark red stems, followed by white flowers in summer and black berries.
