Beautiful spring blooms followed by blue berries for wildlife.

This attractive shrub is used ornamentally in a lot of Pacific Northwest gardens. Beautiful clusters of light pink to deep pink flowers can attract hummingbirds. Clusters of blue berries form in August and are good wildlife food. Needs well drained soils in part shade to full sun.
