Moderate-growing evergreen shrub to 3’ tall x 3-4’ wide. This unique selection is a thornless variety that features slender, upright-growing branches clad with narrow, medium to dark-green, bamboo-like foliage that is ideal for adding a texture contrast to shadier parts of the garden. This attractive foliage is accented with upright-growing spikes of showy, bright-yellow flowers that create an eye-catching display from fall into winter. Adding further appeal to this unique variety are the large clusters of silvery-blue berries that appear after flowering. Well-suited as a foundation, border or mass planting, and is a popular choice for Asian-themed gardens, as well as making a good containerized specimen. Prefers a rich, well-drained soil, and while this variety requires little water once fully established, ample water should be provided during its first initial year of growth. Thrives in a partial shade to shade exposure.
