It grows from rhizomes; they usually grow anywhere from 4 to 8ft tall and to 2 to 4ft wide. Tiny whitish flowers appear in late spring in open, upright, clusters. Flowers are followed by red, spherical, two-seeded, berries that stay on the plant from fall to spring, providing some winter interest. Mature leaf color is green to yellowish green, new foliage can range from bright red to yellow.
