Valued by English gardeners, this plant merits wider use in ornamental gardens, as well as in naturalized settings. Attractive, white flower clusters in spring are up to 2 inches across. Edible, purplish black fruit matures in late summer. In fall, leaves turn bright red or yellow. Most grow to 4-6 ft. tall and prefer partial to full sun.
