Positive coriaceous On Mar 9, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

An attractive suckering shrub grown mainly for its long late summer-early fall flowering and fruiting.

Flowering begins in August here (Boston Z6a) and continues for many weeks. The scent is sweet and (to my nose) a little heavy, and strong enough to perfume the air.

The turquoise-colored fruit begin while flowers are still being produced. The fruit is set off by maroon calyces, which extend the display for many weeks more.

Though the plant is fairly shade tolerant, flowering is best in full sun.

It's very late to leaf out in the spring. If you're tempted to think it's dead, give it time. It tolerates hard pruning in spring.

This shrub spreads slowly by suckering, and can eventually form a sizable colony if not restrained. It's easily propagated by digging up a dormant sucker and replanting it.

The foliage has a strong odor when crushed, to some noses resembling peanut butter. I'm among those who don't find it appetizing. No fall color.

This variety, var. fargesii, is hardier than the species. I've observed this plant at the Arnold Arboretum (Z6a) for decades and hardly ever see any winter dieback.
