Native to China and Eastern Asia and is now grown ornamentally in the United States. The berries are employed as a “yin” tonic in traditional Chinese medicine for a wide variety of conditions, including premature aging, ringing in the ears and chronic toxicity. White flowers are attractive during late spring and early summer. Does well indoors. One of our favorites.
