This small, ornamental tree is grown for its showy fall color and white flowers in the spring. The small white flowers open in April and are followed by blue, edible berries in June that birds quickly consume. The fall color ranges from red to orange.
This tree is grown as a single-stemmed or multiple-stemmed form. It prefers full sun to part sun and moist, well-drained soil, although it can adapt to a wide variety of soils. It does not have any serious pests or diseases.
