Plant details

Koehneana' may be grown as a tree but looks more satisfying as a large shrub. It was introduced from China in 1910. Each long leaf has up to 33 neat narrow leaflets, and the whole shrub is a picture in autumn when these turn rich crimson. The porcelain-white berries with red stalks, are borne in graceful drooping clusters. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
