Plant the shrubs on 3-foot centers for quick cover of the bed and 18 to 24 inches in from the bed edges. It will be easy to prune the shrubs back as they overgrow the edges of the bed in subsequent years. When grown in full sun, it will have a good orange-red fall color. The fall color will be muted as shade levels increase. Though this plant is vigorous, it is not an invader.
