This shrub has leaves that are palmately composed of five leaflets joined from a central point on the leafstalk. The leaves have the potential to turn a decorative bright red in the fall. Flowers on this shrub are small and greenish they are produced in inconspicuous clusters in late spring, and mature in late summer or early fall into small hard purplish-black berries. The berries are toxic to humans but are not toxic to birds and provide an important food source for many bird species during the winter.
