Can make a single-stemmed, small tree, or a multi-stemmed shrub. The glossy, dark, evergreen leaves have up to 11 narrow, pointed leaflets arranged like the spokes of a wheel, on long, dark red stalks. Young foliage is covered in silvery hairs. Green-brown flowers are produced in branched sprays in late summer, followed by purple-black berries in winter.
Grow in well-drained soil in sun or semi-shade. Young plants may need to be kept frost-free, but will survive outdoors in most areas once up to 1m or so, if sheltered from cold, drying winds.
Eventual mature plant size :
Height and spread after 3 – 4 years 1.5m x 1m
Semi-mature height and spread after 7 – 8 years 2.5m x 1.5m
