A vigorous shrub or small tree with stout spiny stems. Initially upright, but eventually spreading. The leaves are very possibly the most amazing aspect of this plant - up to 1.2m (4ft) in length, they may be composed of eighty or more individual leaflets. The panicles of white flowers, produced in the late summer, are soon followed by clusters of black berries that are grouped in small symmetrical whorls that add an intriguing element to their apperence. Autumn foliage ranges from yellow through orange to purple, depending on conditions and parentage.

Sow seed in containers in the fall, or in the spring after cold stratification. To stratify seeds for a spring sowing, place in damp peat moss or sterile in starter pots filled with good sterile growing medium and refrigerate for 3 weeks. Remove and place in a coldframe, or similar sheltered location to germinate. Grow on in moisture-retentive soil, rich in organic matter and a little on the acidic side. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
