Symphoricarpos orbiculatus

Common name: Coralberry

Native plant

Coralberry is part of the oak savanna where it creates low, dense thickets in dry areas that are in full sun or light shade. This plant is native further south. The white flowers are flushed with pink and bloom in early spring, but they are not particularly showy. However, the pea size fruit form large clusters of bright purple and persist through winter. Birds eat the fruit before spring. In the plant world there are very few plants like Coralberry that can grow 3 feet tall and handle dry spots in shade. The other plant is Diervilla, and both plants are part of the Caprifoliaceae (Honeysuckle) Family. We have also found that Coralberry hosts a beautiful little sphinx butterfly. Here at the nursery we have found the caterpillar for the last two years.
