Small white flowers are produced on spikes in mid-spring, followed by cherry red berries which are harmful if eaten.Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in either spring or summer. Mature plants can tolerate hard pruning in spring, cutting back to the old wood.
