Comments: Pure white blooms in early spring, bright crimson fruit in summer and redish autumn color are great assets of this plant. Many kinds of birds relish the fruit. A somewhat prevalent native along rivers and streams in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. Well adapted for naturalistic plantings adjacent to ponds, lakes and other bodies of water, even in rather damp soils. Several improved cultivars have been introduced into the trade that feature attractive flowers, foliage and fruit.
