It is native to Japan, China and India. This is a rhizomatous, upright, evergreen shrub that typically grows to 4-8' tall and to 2-4' wide. In St. Louis, it is semi-evergreen to deciduous, and typically grows shorter since the stems often will die to the ground in winter. Although it belongs to the Barberry family, it is commonly called heavenly bamboo because its erect, cane-like stems and compound leaves resemble bamboo.

Flowers are followed by sprays of spherical, two-seeded, red berries which persist from fall to spring, providing winter interest.
