This plant died on me twice but the third shrub is doing great. It is planted in mostly shade and gets average water. The white berries make a beautiful display.

I could've sworn that this naturally grows here in zone five with very tall grass...

It could just be a very fast growing annual though.

This variety may not be hardy in zone 6A. Mine died during the winter, whereas every other nearby perennial, including the ones that are marginally hardy in my zone, survived. I'll try again in a different micro-climate on my property and report results.
