Deciduous, Shrubs, Decorative fruit or berries
This shrub grows fast to 6 ft. tall and wide, producing impressive flowers and berries. Stems are a handsome gray-green when young, later turning bright green. Paired bright green leaves to 6 in. long.
From summer to early fall, inflorescences form at branch tips and in upper leaf joints; the small white flowers are less conspicuous than the purplish bracts that partially conceal them. Inflorescences are 1–2 in. long at first, then gradually lengthen to 6 in. Blossoms are followed by berries that start out green, rapidly turn deep red, then become purplish black (all three colors are present atonce). In cold-winter areas,shoots may freeze back; cut tothe ground in late winter or early spring, they quickly regrow.
