A demure Japanese and Korean denizen, this dense low growing deciduous shrub imparts a quiet sophistication that belies its dogged constitution. Downward arching, slender, warm brown stems form an interlacing mound guised with crinkled, bright green Maple-like leaves and loose clusters of tiny star-shaped creamy white flowers. Effective for stabilizing banks and hillsides, and utilized as a fast spreading shrubby ground cover, low hedge, wall drape or foundation plant, ‘Crispa’ offers toasty soft orange and yellow shades in the fall, wards off deer and appreciates moist acidic soil plus judicious pruning, either in late winter or late spring.
Size: 12" – 2-1/2' high x 12" – 4' 0" wide.
