Description: One of my collections gathered from a river bank in Baoxing, Sichuan China in 2000. Where it only formed a deciduous shrub to 1.5m tall bearing conspicuous bright red (autumn colour) elliptic-ovate leaves with conspicuously impressed venation above contrasting with the cymes of black fruit, held on greyish stems. Forming a small tree for us in our woodland garden to 3m tall, but capable of 5m in ideal conditions. Flowers held in corymbs of up to 25 pink cup-shaped flowers May to July. Easily grown in sun or part shade in any type of fertile drained soil.
