I've got midwinter fire and I've cut it back to a stick and its been covered in thick snow and survived. Flavamira and Sibirica are good for red colour, Kesselringii for black stems, Florida for brown. I have some green coloured stems which I can't remember the name of too. I have some as standards, others as 10 foot high stems. I've also got a Kousa chinensis but it hasn't produced those nice flower like bracts yet, but I think it because its not big enough yet.
