This shrub is 1 to 2 metres high by 1.50 metres wide. In may, it produces an abundant quantity of simple white flowers, 15 mm in diameter growing in clusters of 6 to 12 flowers. The pea-shaped berries are rounded or oval, measure 6 to 8 mm in diameter, and have a cross-shaped indentation at the crown. Berries ripen in August and September, range in colour from dark violet to lustrous black and fall shortly after ripening.
