The lustrous blue-green foliage of this mounding shrub is attractive over a long season on plants that are more compact than our native Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus). Come fall, though, when the pink blossoms turn into nearly fluorescent pink berries, you’ll see why this is the main attraction. Proud Berry™ delivers a prolific show when planted in full sun and provided with a touch of pruning in early spring to encourage an abundant display of fruit in fall. Be sure to cut some of the berry stems to bring indoors for exceptionally long-lasting, late season bouquets. A Proven Winners® variety. ‘Sophie’ PP 21,226
Grown primarily for their berries that last well into winter, Symphoricarpos produce small, nectar-rich, white or pink flowers that are attractive to pollinators. For more information on the growing and care of Snowberry, click Growing Guide.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
