Coralberry

coralberry makes it unbelievably easy to fill your landscape with these unique pink berries, guaranteed to turn heads. Cute, rounded, bluish-green leaves look handsome all season, then, in late summer, bell-shaped flowers appear. As the season changes to autumn, the flowers develop into large dark pink berries, the color intensifying with cold weather. As pretty as it is, this North American native is also amazingly tough, effortlessly fending off deer, cold weather, and problem soils. The fruit is not edible, but may be eaten by birds in mid-late winter. This plant makes an excellent cut flower for fall arrangements.Coralberry is a native dense suckering shrub that grows 2-5 feet tall and 4-8 feet wide with arching stems.

It is easy to grow in average well-drained soils of various types. Coralberry adapts to partial sun, moist to dry conditions, and loamy or rocky soil. If spreading is not desired then remove the root suckers. It is commonly found in forests or natural areas of bottomland woods of eastern and central USA.With fall in full swing, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. The plants are becoming dormant and less appealing for the winter months. There are a couple of great plants that we can include in our landscapes to add winter interest and to add habitat and food for wildlife, Coralberry and Snowberry.Both coralberry and snowberry are a benefit to the wildlife found on your acreage. Many birds, small mammals, and browsers use these plants for food, cover, and nesting sites, according to The University of Texas at Austin Wildflower Center. The Wildflower Center also records coralberry as attracting large numbers of bees, so it is great for pollinator bees. (Source: communityenvironment.unl.edu)
