Recently putting some of these great shrubs in gardens! Winter is long here in zone 5 and can be very boring, I've been pairing these up with Viburnum dilatatum 'Asian Beauty' and Calicarpus. The combination of berries looks great and adds some cheer and interest as the garden fades. I highly recommend this shrub and some of it's companions if you are looking for some fall/winter interest in your landscape!
