Native to open wooded areas along the Coosa River which runs from Rome, Georgia to northeast of Montgomery, Alabama and on limestone bluffs, cliffs and ledges along the Cumberland Plateau in southeastern Tennessee. Its survival in nature is currently threatened by limestone mining. Orbicular to ovate, cordate, wavy-toothed, dark green leaves (to 5” long) have pubescence on the veins below. Unpleasantly aromatic white flowers in flat-topped cymes (to 3” across) bloom in mid to late spring (May-June). Flowers give way to pea-sized blue-black fruit (berries to 3/8” across) that matures in late summer. Ovate leaves turn bronze-yellow to purple-green in fall.
