Quite showy, double purple-pink flowers bloom on bare, tan-colored branches in spring. Early in the season, the canes are a pretty bright green. NW native deciduous shrub 7' tall and true to its native riparian haunts, it appreciates regular summer water. What a day it would be to stumble across this while hiking in the mountains. My thanks go to someone with a keen eye to share it with the rest of us.

Because the flower is a compact arrangement of petals it is not a selection to grow for the delicious golden fruit. The bees cannot do their business and the offerings during happy hour at the pistil and stamen bar are not very fecund.
