You, of course, had to drive or walk on country roads. Undoubtedly, at the end of summer, you saw bushes as tall as a man, strewn with inedible berries. This is derain. It is unpretentious, gives abundant growth and therefore grows into large groups. It can be found along roads and rivers. He likes damp, sunny or slightly shaded places.

It grows in many places in our country and abroad - in Siberia, the Far East, Mongolia, China, Japan and Europe. Various types of deer grow in North America. In general, there are about 50 species of turf in nature. They are all deciduous, sometimes evergreen shrubs or small trees. Derain are classified into two groups. Some are plants with bright bark that decorate the garden in winter. Some varieties of this group have variegated leaves. To maintain the decorative shape of the bushes, regular pruning is necessary.

Another group is made up of shrubs with beautiful flowers or leaves that change color by autumn. Derain has been cultivated for almost 400 years. It is valued primarily for its bright red to dark purple color of the bark of young shoots. It is most expressive when there is no foliage on the bushes yet or it has already fallen, that is, usually from the end of November until the appearance of new leaves in mid-May. …

Winter and early spring are a rather sad and boring time, and bright groups of deren are especially colorful against the background of trees with dark needles. Rare sun rays in winter emphasize the brightness of the color of the bark. Most types of deren do not differ in their originality. But their habitus, the majesty of the spreading of bushes with drooping shoots, the abundance of white, bluish or black fruits, the decorative color of the leaves of garden forms deserve the attention of gardeners. Let's get acquainted with some interesting varieties, zoned in our climatic conditions, with the quirkiness of their forms and the bark of an unusual color.

Derain is white. His homeland is Siberia, Manchuria and Korea. This is an outstanding selection from the Tatar tree, the most widespread in nature. Grows around the cities of Russia, Holland and northern Europe. Derain white is known all over the world as a tree or a beautiful ornamental shrub. In summer it has yellow flowers. With rich, coral red or deep purple delicate branches that bend almost to the ground, this variety is excellent in the winter garden, where they create a striking contrast between snow and evergreen perennials.

Its leaves, like most tree trees, are arranged oppositely on the petioles, they are whole-edged, 10 cm long and 3-6 cm wide. In summer they are variegated and green, and bluish-white on the underside. In autumn, the leaves turn reddish. During flowering, like most other trees, this species is not very decorative: the flowers are small with four creamy white petals, but the flowers are numerous and collected in corymbose inflorescences. Flowering occurs in the second half of summer. The fruits are white or pale blue drupes that ripen in August. They are medium-sized, up to 6 mm in diameter. In autumn, the bush is very attractive. Known decorative forms of white turf:

- silvery-bordered with a creamy-white border;

- Shpet - leaves with a wide yellow edge;

- Siberian - undersized form with bright red shoots;

- Kesselringa - purple-black shoots.

They form excellent bright spots in any garden setting. The height of the bushes is mainly from 1.2 to 3 m, the width is 1.8-2.5 m. These species grow well in damp ground and in full sunlight. Mandatory pruning is done in early spring to accelerate the growth of young, delicate branches and enhance the brightness and color of the stems.

Nowadays, two decorative forms with original foliage coloration during the entire growing season are widely used in landscaping: white silvery-edged turf with contrasting fringing of leaves and white Shpeta turf with a very bright orange color of almost the entire leaf blade. The decorative color of foliage is best shown in the sun. Both of these forms of white turf grow to form a large, brightly colored shrub that contrasts with the rest of the plantings, beautifying the site. The size and shape of the bushes are maintained by regularly trimming the branches.
