Attractive small tree, often multi-stemmed, or may grow as a shrub. This form has large, long lasting, pink berries in late summer and autumn, remaining long after the leaves have dropped. Pinnate foliage and pink-tinged white flowers in spring.
Best in moderately fertile, moist, well drained soil, preferably neutral to acid, but quite tolerant of most reasonable conditions. Sun or light dappled shade. Grafted plants are less drought tolerant.
From seed. Apomictic, coming true from seed.
Good tree for towns and city gardens. Will tolerate some atmospheric pollution.
