They're not strong enough growers to cut back every year like some.
But nothing else has that stunning colour does it.
There's fine stand of them at Anglesey Abbey. Look brilliant in the sunshine.
Mine good one is about 10 foot tall, maybe 15 years inplace. never been cut, it's gone naturally into a horizontal layer look like some cornus do and I don't want to lose that
