A shade tolerant shrub, valuable in woodland gardens. Pinkish to magenta leaves are very attractive in the fall and the fruit changes from green to red, then dark blue or purple-black in September and October. This species spreads by suckers to form clumps and will grow in dry or moist sandy, rocky or clayey soil. Inner bark was used in a tea for cramps and colic, and leaves were applied to inflamed tumours.
