It typically grows to 2 m tall and the same wide, performing best when planted in full sun on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of frost, cool climates, short periods of dry, and a range of soil types, barring extreme wet and dry. “Fjellheim” makes for a magnificent specimen and is ideal for including in a mixed planting, growing against a stark wall, planting around outdoor living areas, or for using anywhere the spectacular colour can be enjoyed.
