Maintenance Notes: 

Best in moist, well drained, slightly acidic soil.  Trim to shape after flowering.

Yes, it's showy, but it's also easy to grow.  This compact, well-branched hybrid has loads of bright red fruit, tightly packed into show clusters in late summer and fall.  White flowers appear in April and May.  This cross between V. lantana and V.rhytidiphyllum has a rounded upright habit.  Fruiting is enhanced by planting it near V. 'Mohican' or V. rhytidophylloides 'Alleghany'.
