Hmmmm, i like this Andrew.
Whereabouts do you have this ?

It likes a fairly sunny spot but sheltered Louise. But it gets big - 25 feet by fifteen (I had mine reduced this last winter to keep it within bounds)

I like it.
How old is it here and was it you that planted it or did you inherit it with the garden ?

I planted it in 2003 and it has made prodigious growth since then

The red C. hookerianum is common but is one is much more subtle and very pretty. I assume it likes acid soil like C. h. It is some fast grower, though.

Yes, acid soil Vincent but a drier and sunnier spot than C.hookerianum. The flowers are smaller too
