All-righty then!!! Let's try this one more time, shall we?? Described thusly in the trade: An upright deciduous shrub with a slow-growing, compact form and lovely small burgundy-red leaves. Fall color includes bright orange and red. Prefers sun/partial shade in well-drained soil. 5' tall x 3' wide in 10 years. Hardy to -20 degrees. USDA zone 5. And to be sure, this is NOT a witches broom. Many thanks to Sam at Eastfork for making things right. We love you, Sam!
