Easy to grow and winter hardy! Low, densely-branched shrub with dark green, maple-like leaves that turn red-purple in the fall. Flat-topped clusters of white flowers bloom in late spring producing blue-black fruits enjoyed by birds. Prune as needed immediately after flowering. Plants naturalize by suckering to form loose open colonies if suckers not removed. Susceptible to bacterial leaf spot. Tolerates black walnut and some drought once established. Attracts songbirds, game birds, butterflies and native bees. Larval host for Spring Azure butterflies.
