Flowers, Fruit, Foliage
Showy, small flowers bloom throughout the spring in shades of pink, but they only bloom heavily every other year. The edible red fruit ripens in the summer and persists on branches without littering the ground. Ovate leaves emerge as a red-green color and shift to red-purple in autumn months.
Pests & Diseases
