Great cultivar of an Eastern U.S. native. Compact foliage along the stems open up to create a picturesque form with maturity. Color maintains fairly well through winter. The plant is tough and thrives in most any environmental situations. Blue fruit provide many birds places to feed and nest. This cultivar as well as other virginiana cultivars seem to be less available to buy over time and may require some work to locate.

Have one in my front yard - female cultivar and a prolific berry producer - birds love it in winter as it provides a great food source for them.
