Comments: Graceful draping stems with heavy fruit set. Birds and other wildlife eat the fruit. It makes a good plant for the xeriscape garden. Expecially well adapted for the edges of plantings where cascading branches are needed. Will tolerate a reasonable amount of shade and still set a good amount of berries.
