Fantastic shrub. My three were planted Spring 2002 and are now five to six feet tall by four to five feet wide. I planted 'Michael Dodge' for pollination. I get a beautiful, heavy fruit set which persists and slowly changes from red to coral. They have been munched on a bit by the deer but have thrived nonetheless. They have showy white flowers in May and the foliage is a great deep green and has a great texture. I can't resist feeling it as I walk by. No disease problems so far. Survived last winter's deep cold without a problem. Using 'Michael Dodge' to pollinate offers the bonus of brilliant fellow berries. This is a must-have three season wonder.
