It would be difficult to find a more beautiful shrub than this one, with its glorious, windmill-shaped, large, white flowers. It is particularly striking in spring and attracts a lot of attention.
Its drooping foilage is a talking point as the plant gives the impression of requiring water, but this is simply the way it grows. The leaves turn an orange-red to a very dark, burgondy-red in autumn and during the late summer there are an abundance of small, red, edible fruits which will attract a variety of birds to the garden.
