A medium -sized deciduous shrub native to Japan . Plants develop clusters of pink, sweetly fragrant flowers in July that are often obscured by the 2-3" leaves. The flowers often elicit a, "what' s that smell" reaction from customers who notice the fragrance but can' t see the blooms amongst the plants greenery. In fall, the plants shine when they produce magnificent crops of metallic-purple berries. This display is unmatched in our garden at this time of year. We' re always amazed as the plants appear to covertly swindle money from the hands of unsuspecting customers and quietly sneak into the back seat of their cars.
