A fabulous plant primarily grown for its winter interest. However, it produces clusters of white flowers at he end of its shoots which are then followed by blue-black fruits during late summer and autumn. As an added bonus the leaves turn lovely shades of yellow in autumn, contrasting well with the berries.
Once the leaves have dropped this plant elevates itself to the top level. It's such a perfectly named variety because the shoots from distance do look like they're on fire and the colder the winter the more intense the colours become.
Thin out some of the stems each spring as it's the youngest stems that give the best colour. Always better when planted in a sunny position.
