  • Has larger flowers than B. alternifolia with a scent.
  • Attractive oak shaped leaves that change to maroon and yellow in the autumn
  • Excellent screening plant. The birds love it in my garden. In the winter they roost in it as it is close to the bird table.

Remove all the old flowering shoots before the end of June.  It pays to reduce the height by at least 50%, left unpruned it will get very large.
