A beautiful Japanese briar with rich coppery or burnished-red, bristly stems in winter and tasyy, bright red, edible fruits in midsummer. In our opinion, it is well worth cultivating simply as a fruiting plant, but it also happens to be very ornamental and makes an attractive garden feature. The fruits may be used to make delicious jellies, pies or cakes.
