Height: 4-5′ Width: 4-5′

Hardy, native plant with small, bell-shaped light pink flowers in July that turn into showy, large, inedible, white berry clusters that last into winter. Blue-green foliage on a bushy, spreading, suckering habit. Branches with berries can be used for indoor bouquets. Good for mass plantings, reclamation and naturalization areas. Not particular to soil type and does well in poor soil and heavy clay; tolerates drought and partial shade (in full shade it’s prone to powdery mildew). Fertilize in spring with an all purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges. Prune as needed in late winter/early spring before new growth emerges, suckers can be removed anytime.

Available in select potted sizes.
