The creamy-white flowers in autumn are followed by bright red drupes around 3 cm in length in late winter. The fruit are edible and can be eaten raw or cooked. The fruits are rich in antioxidants. Swamp Maire is sold for use in gardens as an ornamental plant. It is not related to other species called ''Maire'', which are in the genus ''Nestegis''.
