Why We Love It

Expect deep red finely-cut leaves from the 'Dissectum'. This hardy shrub grows up to 2 metres tall and produces small summer flowers that give way to garnet-coloured fruits in autumn.

How to Plant

Grow this plant in moist, well-drained soil with an acidic or neutral pH, in partial shade for the best leaf colour. Water in summer.

Into the Ground

If you're giving your 'Dissectum' a pot for its new home, make sure it'll have the space it needs to grow. When you're ready, grab your large pot, ericaceous compost, fertiliser and watering can.

  1. Sprinkle in a mixture of soil and ericaceous compost.
  2. Tease the roots of the plant and then gently place it into the hole.
  3. Backfill soil, firm up and water thoroughly.
  4. Remove dead, damaged or crossing branches in winter.
Into a Pot

Before you start planting, make sure your chosen spot is free from weeds and any other debris. Then grab your spade, watering tool, ericaceous compost and fertiliser.

  1. Dig a deep hole roughly twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  2. Mix in a generous amount of soil and ericaceous compost.
  3. Gently spread the roots of the plant and then place inside.
  4. Backfill soil and water generously until well established.
  5. Add fertiliser around the base in spring.
