This plant grows in the form of a cover plant for Whitetail bedding areas., makes great screens as well. This plant is stimulated when browsed to grow more branches. Produces berries in partial shade but one of the most interesting features of this shrub is that Indians made arrows from the very straight stems. Bow hunters can use this plant to feed whitetails and themselves if you follow my thinking!
