Coralberry, scientifically known as Symphoricarpos Orbiculatus, is a captivating and versatile ornamental shrub that will add beauty and interest to your landscape. This native North American gem is cherished for its distinctive features, vibrant berries, and its ease of care.


Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates wide range of soils. Remove root suckers and runners to control any unwanted spread of the plant.



Typical Uses:

  • Ornamental Appeal: This shrub boasts clusters of small, bell-shaped pink to purplish-pink flowers in the spring, which give way to vibrant coral-colored berries in the fall. The striking berries remain on the branches well into winter, offering a pop of color during the colder months.
  • Wildlife Attraction: Coralberry’s berries are a favorite of songbirds, making it an excellent choice for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts.
  • Erosion Control: Due to its dense growth and spreading roots, Coralberry is effective in preventing soil erosion on slopes and banks.

Establishment and Care Instructions:

  • Coralberry is known for its low-maintenance qualities, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners. Here’s how to establish and care for this beautiful shrub:
  • Location: Plant your Coralberry in well-drained soil with partial to full sunlight exposure. It can tolerate a variety of soil types, making it adaptable to different garden conditions.
  • Planting: Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, place the shrub, and cover it with soil. Be sure to water thoroughly after planting.
  • Watering: While Coralberry is drought-tolerant once established, it’s crucial to provide consistent moisture during the first year to encourage strong root development. Afterward, water during dry spells.
  • Pruning: Prune sparingly to maintain its natural shape and promote vigorous growth. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to remove dead or damaged branches.
  • Fertilization: Coralberry typically doesn’t require regular fertilization. If your soil is particularly poor, consider a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the early spring.

Special Features and Usage:

  • Four-Season Interest: From its springtime blossoms to the vibrant autumn berries and winter persistence, Coralberry adds year-round visual appeal to your landscape.
  • Wildlife Habitat: Beyond its stunning appearance, this shrub attracts birds, butterflies, and pollinators, creating a thriving ecosystem in your garden.
