Also commonly known as Indian cherry, this ornamental shrub or small tree is easy to grow and tolerates a wide range of conditions. The attractive foliage is dark green and shiny during the warm months and turns yellow/orange in autumn. As the berries form, they go from red in late summer to black as they mature; they are especially attractive to birds. Carolina buckthorn has an open, airy form with a shape that is similar to flowering dogwood. It will grow best when it has a bit of shade during hot afternoons.Uses: hedge, birds, beesBloom time: May - JuneHeight: 15 - 25 feetSpace: 15 - 20 feetSun: Sun - medium shadeMoisture: dry - moist
