DESCRIPTIONKurome - this is an attractive variety, with erect shoots. In spring it stands out because of its original catkins, which are at first almost black and later turning golden-red. The shrub has a spherical shape, with many stems that are covered in bright green leaves.
ADVICESEasy to maintain, but a lot of water and light is essential for lush growth. It prefers fertile soil, and it is very resistant to air pollution. Grows well in industrial areas and cities. It is frost resistant, and does not require protection in winter.
In the first year, immediately after blooming and before the leaves show, prune the shoots very vigorously leaving only a few buds at the base of the branches. In this way you can achieve density within the tree. Pruning can be repeated during the growing season, but no later than July. In the following years the shoots can be pruned to the length you want. Strong spring pruning, carried out immediately after blooming, rejuvenates the plant. Due to this process you will have many long shoots that will bloom profusely the following spring.
