“Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it.”
~ E.O. Wilson, Biodiversity
Small pink blooms in summer are followed by clusters of brilliant fuschia berries in the fall. Berries color in early October and remain until they are eaten by birds and small mammals in late November. Light yellow fall color.
Grow in dry to average soil in full sun to partial shade. Plants experience die-back in some winters. Use local ecotype sources. They benefit from a 5-inch layer of protective mulch in the fall.
Great ornamental shrub for the garden. Berries attract songbirds in the fall. Also provides cover for birds and small mammals.
