Thrives is woodland soils with high organic matter. Fruit eaten by birds. Plants spread by stolons and a single plant can become a small thicket in a few years. Lot of interesting features -- huge compound leaves, flowers in summer, attractive black fruit in fall, and tall slender bare trunks covered with thorns in winter. Excellent for woodland gardens and other naturalistic sites. A native that is quite widespread across the South.
