A beautiful multi-stemmed deciduous shrub of low, moist woods and swamps, Northern Wild Raisin produces wide, showy clusters of fragrant white flowers in mid-June. The fruits are also showy and edible, consisting of upright groups of bright pink berries which typically darken to red and eventually purple as they mature and age, generally persisting until they are eaten by wildlife. Leaves provide excellent fall color! Tolerates occasional flooding, acid and poorly-drained soil, although it can also tolerate upland, well-drained conditions. Supports a wide variety of wildlife, including many types of songbird, and the flowers are favorites of nectaring butterflies! The name "witherod" comes from the Old English word "withe," meaning flexible twig.
