It is the most commonly grown member of the genus and is popular for its size, attractive flowers and colorful blue berries. It is adaptable to many climate zones provided water is available. It is not demanding as to soils but sands and waterlogged areas are not favored. Plants will grow in full sun to heavy shade.
