The species is not very often grown, partly because several plants need to be grown together to produce good crops of the violet bead-like berries. 'Profusion' is a great improvement, fruiting well on its own, with large packed clusters of the berries, in mid-autumn, overlapping with the golden purple leaf tints and then lingering after leaf-fall. The young foliage is bronze-purple, and makes good material for vases, as do bare branches laden with berries. Plants tolerate a little lime in the soil, but conditions which are too alkaline will cause leaf yellowing.

The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
