Description:

This deciduous shrub has small pink flowers in summer but it's usually grown for the elegant berries that it produces in the autumn. The berries are round, fleshy and last long after the shrub has shed its leaves for the year. It grows reasonably quickly and is a good choice for gardeners looking for a shrub to liven up an autumn border. It's happiest in a sunny spot in fertile soil, but it's also adaptable enough to cope with a partially shaded area. The berries can cause a mild skin irritation when handled, so do wear gloves if handling the plant.
