This can be considered a large shrub or small tree depending on whether or not the stems are pruned. Like the name suggests, Autumn Brilliance aptly describes the magnificent autumn red leaf color. But just as stunning is its spring-time bloom of white flowers followed by dark edible fruit that you and the birds will fight over! Performs best in well draining soils, but will tolerate clay if kept on the dry side. Its size is perfect for underneath power lines (it’ll never grow into them), inclusion into a windbreak or simply as beautiful plant in the landscape.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
