Description This female selection is one of the best small shrubs to fool your gardening friends because to the untrained eye it appears as Poison Oak. It is a deciduous shrub that when you rub the leaves or stems it has a lemonade like scent. In the spring it has small yellow flowers that turn to red fuzzy berries in early summer. The berries have be used to make a lemonade tasting drink. Hikers often put the berries in their water bottles to flavor their water. In the fall the foliage turn brilliant shades of red. It prefers full sun to partial shade in well drain soils. A dioecious species(a single sexed species), so you would need a male for berry production, though not required to enjoy this hard to find native shrub. Mature size can be 3'High x 5'Wide.
