Coral Berry Symphoricarpos x doorenbosii

The vivid color of this coral berry makes it superior to other varieties. The vibrant hot pink fruit is much brighter and showier in the landscape than that of other coral berry cultivars. AMETHYST™ has good branching and a neat habit, unlike the rangy forms seen in many older types. This is a great plant to include in the home garden. It provides vivid color in mid-summer, and works nicely in informal woodland type gardens. It has been reported to be somewhat deer resistant.
