A shrub with many attractive features, with one of the most well known being its rich, dark berries. The black berries hang in heavy clumps and are best picked when ripe after a frost. Commonly used in jams or jellies because of their high pectin levels. White blooms appear in the late spring, contrasting glossy dark green leaves. Foliage turns a vibrant red and orange in the fall season. Because it is seen as a smaller shrub it is a popular choice for gardens that do not have much space. Tolerant of a wide range of soil and moisture conditions.
