Plant is great covering a fence in dense shade. It has insignificant white flowers, followed by beautiful panicles of red-orange berries in the fall. The vine is agressive and can grow 3-25 feet a year! The berries are used medicinally and as a food. (Not your grandmother's blueberries to my palate.)
