I just purchased this plant. Also called 'Henneke'. I really like the glossy thick foliage and am looking forward to the bloom and the fruit which should stay on until December, may be persisting into early spring. Tag said 5-6' x 5'6. Info from Michael Dirr:
Slow to medium growth, rounded, foliage dark green & lustrous holds late, soil - moist, slightly acid but okay in slightly higher pH, Bloom May/early June, fruit bright scarlet berreies Sept./Oct. Propogate cultivars by softwood cuttings which is easy. Use as specimen, shrub border, all purpose plant, 3 season plant. Cultivars are preferred to the species.
Should be used more often.
