This hardy, fast growing native shrub is a wildlife magnet and super easy to grow. Clusters of creamy white, nectar-rich spring flowers are followed by white berries on pretty red stalks that attract songbirds. Shiny, dark gray-green leaves turn shades of purple and burgundy red in fall. Adaptable to sun or shade, dry or wet soil. Ideal for natural areas or poor soil areas where little else grows. Note: this is a large plant that spreads aggressively by suckering. Host plant for the Spring Azure butterfly.
