A native “superfruit” with multi-season interest! Upright, deciduous shrub with clusters of white flowers in spring and brilliant orange-red and purple fall foliage. Plentiful dark purple-black berries hang in clusters that ripen in early fall. When eaten fresh, they are quite tart, but very popular when adding to juices for their nutritious and antioxidant properties. Attractive to pollinators and any berries you forget to harvest will be enjoyed by the birds throughout the winter. Self-pollinating. Height 3-6′.
Extremely versatile, tolerating both wet and dry soil conditions.
