Small spreading tree or large shrub. Scented foliage. Pink or greenish buds open into clusters of fragrant white flowers in summer. Striking blue berries with red calyces follow in autumn.

Moist well drained, preferably humus-rich soil in sun or semi-shade. Quite drought tolerant once established. Reasonably frost hardy but will need a sheltered position in areas with cold winters.

From seed. Also by root cutting or division of suckers if produced.
