Bright pink flowers are followed by blackish red berries that provide seasonal forage for wildlife. Deciduous. Moderate growing; reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide. This shrub can be used in hedges, rain gardens, and as a specimen plant. The berries can be used for wine, jellies, jams, pie fillings, and syrups. It is less sweet than American Elderberry.
