It is a hardy deciduous shrub or small tree.  Pale yellow near white flowers in late spring and beautiful red fruit in fall with bright orange seeds.  The twigs in fall with fruit and yellow fall colour in leaves are quite showy, good for cut flower.  It tolerants wide range of soil condition.  Prefer full sun to partial shade location.  Mature size is 8′-10′ (H).  But it is easy to prune to desire size.  Easy to propagate by seeds or cuttings.  USDA Zones:5-8.  Toxic if ingested.

It thrives when growing in good soil and light, it could be invasive.  It is better to control the seeds before they are mature.  If you have good or normal soil I do not recommend to plant this.   But for some poor soil condition this could be the right choice.

歐衛矛是很強健的落葉灌木或小樹.  適合栽種在全日照到半日照處.  春末開淡黃接近白色的小花,秋天果實成熟轉紅,果實裂開後呈現出橘色外皮的種子.  帶著紅果的枝幹與秋色黃葉很搶眼,適合作切花花材.  耐寒. 耐貧瘠土壤. 成熟株高及寬幅為8-10呎.   有毒不可食.

土壤若肥份不差可能變成過於強勢會需要修剪控制.  我是不建議栽種在一般庭園除非土壤貧瘠很難找到適合的植物栽種.
