Small, mounded shrub growing 3-6’ tall and wide with slender, multiple stems and reddish-brown bark. Glossy, dark green foliage turns crimson red in the fall. Showy clusters of fragrant white flowers bloom in May, followed by black-purple berries that persist into winter, providing a food source for songbirds. Prefers full to part sun and moist soils. Tolerates infertile soil and flooding. Deer resistant. Great for mass plantings, borders and naturalistic plantings, and useful for bank stabilization and erosion control. Fruits can be used to make tasty jams and jellies.
