|Spreading, multi-stemmed, shrubby tree reaching up to 25 feet in height and width. Ovate leaves are long, bronze and hairless when young turning green in summer and red or orange in the fall. Pendant racemes of white flowers bloom in spring followed by very sweet, juicy, edible, blue-black fruit. Because roots are not aggressive and shade is not dense, this lovely plant is a superb choice for a perennial border or entryway. Flowers are best seen when plant is located in front of dark background such as an evergreen border or wall.
