The best fruiting plant for your shade garden! A native of Pacific Northwest lowland forests, this evergreen bush is beautiful throughout the year. In the spring and the fall the young foliage turns from green to a striking bronze color. The late summer-ripening berries are a dark blue; tart and flavorful, half the size of a blueberry. The shrub grows best in the shade where it can reach 6-8 feet without pruning. In the sun it only grows to 3 feet tall. It has a dense growth habit and spaced about 3 feet apart makes a beautiful evergreen hedge.
