The foliage is dark green, yellows in the summer and finally changes to bronzy red in fall. Flowers in late spring or early summer, small white blooms on 1 to 2 inch diameter corymbs. In mid fall a bright red pome is produced, which will persist on the shrub if not devoured by birds. Rarely requires pruning, prefers well drained, acid soil. Fireblight can devastate this species.
