This rather curious shrub has long, slender, woody stems and compound leaves which can reach over 30cm (12in) length, with lance-shaped leaflets. The foliage takes on purple tints in the autumn. The plant produces panicles of small white flowers in late summer and later may also have red berries. These are spectacular and create a blaze of colour in the winter months. It is slow growing and can take 20 years to reach mature dimensions. It is so fine-boned a shrub that it can get lost and needs careful placing to succeed.
