Euronymus alatus 'Compactus'

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any experience of growing Euronymus alatus 'Compactus'? I'm very fond of plants with red leaves, and I saw a larger version of this growing at a National Trust property, which really caught my eye. Does anybody have any pictures of how it could be planted?

I have the beginnings of a red/green theme although it is a bit haphazard admittedly - there are 4 Cornus Siberica Variegata, a red star Cordyline, 2 blueberry bushes, a Viburnum x hillieri 'Winton' and a Pieris japonica Mountain Fire - plus some random wildflowers that I sowed for some reason and have now disrupted the scheme image 

I have clay soil (digging the dogwoods in was terrible, lol) and as there are a few yews and laurels close by, the presence of roots often means last minute changes to where I plant things.

Any advice would be much appreciated image

    Apologies - pressed submit when I just realised this might be better in the Garden Design section, eep!

    Very easy to grow, would like your soil. As I am sure you know it only has red leves in Autumn.
