This is the second year and growth very poor. Only 1 new shoot with just a few leaves. Is this normal for this time of year? Would be good to get a reply as no reply to my query last year!

How vigorous? (Nancy)

I'm wondering about planting this as part of a mixed hedge. Do you think it could work...? How vigorous is it? I have't got a wall or trellis spare but another option would be in to a tree. I live in the south of the UK. Thanks Nancy

Schisandra - How vigorous (Philipp Schneider)

Schisandra 'Take5' is very vigorous, although the growth in the first year after planting will be more moderate.
A trellis is working, but it should be not a small one.
If the place is sunny, Schisandra can grow into a tree too. Maybe you have to help the plant to scale the stem.

Schisandra (Karen)

This plant is growing ok but when it reaches a certain height it gets die back. The leaves go brown at the tips and are very dry. I've planted it in the shade, and make sure that bit does not dry out. I did start to get some fruit but this was on one of the first stems to die off. New stems are growing but some of the new tips of the plant are withering. Can you help?
