The Red Osier’s burgundy bark is very attractive against its green leaves in summer, and its burgundy/red fall colour is bright and eye-catching. When trimmed to a 4 -5′ height the Red Osier also makes a great hedge. In winter the branches of the bush stay a dark burgundy and make a great contrast against the white snow – 12 months of landscape value!
