An ideal shrub for the rock garden which will provide a little height. The foliage is deeply veined with wavy edges, rough textured and rounded in shape. The colour of the foliage is deep green and provides a super foil for the flowers which are borne in late spring. Flowers are held in loose heads and many of these heads are borne on each plant. Size is quite small individually. Colour of the bud is pink and the flower opens up a pale blush-pink.
It has a common name of Wax Currant because of the waxy red berries it produces after flowering.
