Coral Berry

Proud Berry® coralberry produces unique pink berries, guaranteed to catch yor eye.  Attractive, rounded, bluish-green leaves lare followed in late summer, by bell-shaped flowers. As the season changes to autumn, the flowers develop into large dark pink berries, the colour intensifying with cold weather. 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.
