Very nice Holly, mine is still flowering too and the blackbirds love the berries.
I think they're a 'must have' Sue, so easy and they dont get too big either.

I have this plant, it does get big here in the South, but you can cut it down every year to keep it in check.

Mine is probably a different variety then DottyD, mine reaches about 5 feet max.
