This superb evergreen does as well in cultivation as it does in more naturalized settings. Small glossy evergreen leaves are quite attractive and persist all year. The branches are often used in floral arrangements. It has small pinkish white flowers in spring followed by edible blackish purple fruit towards late summer or fall. They do well in sun or shade with slightly acid soils.
