A broadleaf shrub, common in streamside areas and found in the understory (beneath the canopy of trees). It provides cover for wildlife and erosion control, and has attractive white flowers in late spring.
Mostly container seedlings, not widely available. Also can be grown from 1-year old cuttings.
Regenerates from seed, by resprouting from the base after cutting or breakage, and from spreading underground stems called rhizomes.
