These easy-to-grow, cold-hardy shrubs are grown for their compound leaves edged with spiny teeth which look good all year. Their spiky clusters of fragrant, yellow flowers develop into blue-black fruit which attracts birds. Some are drought-tolerant and have reddish to purplish fall color. Start by seed or cuttings.
