Nannyberry is a fast-growing shrub that grows to a height of 15—20 ft. and crown spread of 6—10+ ft. It can be pruned to acquire tree form. It prefers moist, moderately coarse sandy or gravelly loam, but does well in other types of soil. It grows best in full sun, but will tolerate some shade. Glossy green leaves turn deep maroon in the fall. Small white flowers in 2—3 inch flat-topped clusters appear in May. Mature fruit is a bluish-black berry, ripe in September, that has a date-like flavor. Uses include wildlife plantings, and landscaping for borders, foundation plantings, and a specimen tree.
