Combining four distinct periods of garden interest in one easy-to-grow hardy shrub, 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' looks lovely as a specimen plant in a mixed border or a grassy area.
Awarded the Best New Plant at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2015, 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' erupts into flower, with tiered layers of white lacecap blooms in April and May – giving rise to its occasionally used common name of the Wedding Cake Tree. These pretty white flowers age to a lovely blush pink, often with many overlapping tones on the plant at once.
This is followed in summer by bright red berries, which help feed the birds and other wildlife, before it surprises you again with a smaller autumn reflowering. Then, in a final blaze of glory, its leaves turn to fiery bright red-purple in autumn before falling.
Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready to plant, growing to a height of 2.5m (8ft) and spread of 1.5m (5ft) after 7-10 years.
