Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

Tor is a compact mound of dark gray-green birch-like leaves. Tiny white flowers cover the plant in late spring and removal of faded flowers will encourage additional bloom. Autumn brings quality shades of orange, red and purple. Works well as a specimen or group in rock gardens, low hedges for paths and walkways, and also incorporates well into foundation plantings. Fast growing. Grows well in most soil types.
