This 7' t x 4' w shrub blooms white in April, has shiny leaves, brilliant red-orange in fall, with also brilliant red-orange berries. It's very low-maintenance and very easy-going, tolerating shade, tolerating clay, and tolerating nearly any amount of water or lack thereof. Handsome and an easy keeper. If only they were all that way ;).

The common name is in reference to the tart and bitter berries which are technically edible but so astringent as to cause choking in those who deign to try them.
Minimum temperature: -30° F
