|Evergreen or deciduous, these popular shrubs are prized as flowering, fruiting and foliage plants that adapt to various climates and conditions. Some plants have showy or fragrant flower, others bloom in winter, or offer fall color. Ornamental berries come in shades of red, black and blue, and attract birds. Protect from direct sun where summers are long, hot and dry. Water regularly during growing/blooming season, less at other times. Mulch to keep roots cool and moist. Prune to keep plants in shape. Watch the evergreens for spider mites, scale, aphids and thrips.
The maplelike, deep green leaves of this deciduous shrub turn yellow to reddish purple in fall. Branches sometimes arch to the ground. Creamy white, lacy flowers are followed by bunches of bright red fruits, both of which are edible.
