What are the pros? Beautiful Bush
What are the cons? Invasive Plant
Plant is very easy to grow, however, it is aggressive and is an invasive species in Seattle. Seeds are spread liberally by hungry birds and new plants can shoot up all over your yard and your neighbor's. Even though it is a beautiful plant and the flowers and berries hang down like a fuchsia, but I'd think twice before planting seed in zone 8. Note: All plants in my yard have been destroyed.
