Fragrant, blush-pink to white flowers bloom in April on this fruit-bearing, woody vine. In China, it's called "five flavor berry" because the red berry contains salty, sweet, sour, pungent (spicy), and bitter flavors. In some quarters it's touted as a panacea. But it would be sufficient to consider it just a very beautiful vine and to have it in your presence may be therapeutic enough. It's native to forests of Manchuria where its long clusters of brilliant red fruits develop in stunning clusters. Grows about 15 ft; self-fertile; unsexed seedlings (needs a male pollinizer). 

Minimum temperature: -30° F
