This interesting shrub produces small, fragrant white flowers in the summer, followed by dark purple berries in the Autumn. It thrives in moist, well-drained soils and is often utilized in landscaping for its attractive bark and foliage, making it a popular ornamental plant. Additionally, it holds cultural significance in indigenous folklore and is known for its aromatic leaves.
