The northernmost member of a mostly tropical and sub-tropical family, this small bushy tree definitely looks tropical! It prefers sunny dry sites and can reach 6 meters but is usually around 3 meters. Its red hairy berry clusters can be used to make a local kind of pink lemonade. Macerate in water and add honey.... The berry clusters can also be dried and used with rice and other foods to add a little zesty taste like its cousin from the Middle East that is greatly used in arab cuisine. An important source of pollen for the bees after the flowering of hawthorn. It can be an invasive species if it loves the land where it is planted.
