Valued for its brilliant scarlet fall color and ornamental red berries. The berries are often passed over by birds in the summer and fall when tastier fruits, such as blueberries are available – they become an important food source for winter residents and returning migrants. Valued also for its fragrant flowers – small, but showy en masse and nectar-rich, making them very attractive to bees. By removing suckers, it can be pruned into a small vase-shaped tree.
