This ornamental, large shrub is made up of dark green, shiny ovate leaves which turn a reddish purple during the autumn.
In the spring time, before the leaves develop, masses of tiny, pretty golden-yellow flowers appear like a golden mist around the bare stems. This plant in particular gives your garden a glow during the drab, winter days.
In midsummer, colourful, bright red cherry like fruits are formed which, when fully ripe are used for making a delicious sauce (similar to the traditional cranberry sauce) or jams. The fruit tastes sweet as well as acidic at the same time.
For the plants optimum growth, it is best to position it where it will receive full sun or half shade. Hardy to temperatures as low as -20.
