Product Details

Product Details

Symphoricarpos Proud Berry® is a mounding shrub featuring lustrous blue-green foliage that 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. Cut some of the berry stems to bring indoors for exceptionally long-lasting, late-season bouquets. The berries are also a good food source for robins and thrushes. A Proven Winners® variety. 'Sofie' 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.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Lovely shrub!

I bought this snowberry bush from White Flower farm two autumns ago and planted it in a spot with part sun and rich clay soil. It was a beautiful specimen when it arrived and is even better now. It grew fairly quickly, has lovely leaves, and developed fabulous pale pink berries after a year in the ground. The deer in my garden haven’t paid much attention to it. I highly recommend it.

Smaller i hope

I have grown Symphoricarpos orbiculatus 'Moench' Coralberry for over 30 years, I have 35 plants of this. I also have many neighbors who grow Symphoricarpos alba, the white Snowberry which gets even taller, often to 8'. Both are attactive and tough plants.

My orbicularis gets 5' tall by 8' wide in full sun. It tolerates a lot of shade where it reaches 4 x 4' It has held up to snow-15 degrees, lots of gophers, and high heat-110 in our area. I have pruned it severely because it is too large for where I have it in sun. It always comes back nicely. It takes lots of wind with an open, airy, graceful appearance. The one drawback is that it's branches root in the ground rather easily and it is hard work to dig them out. It's berries are inconspicuous.

I am hoping this plant only grows to the dimensions they say and with pink berries will be even more attractive that what i now have. Will follow up later with an update.

Well packaged, looks healthy

Plants just arrived, so can't report on long-term results yet, but they were well packaged and appear healthy. Came with about 2.5 feet of foliage.

Groundskeeper

I added ' Proud Berry' into my grouping of S. albus a few years ago, and am very happy that I did! Not only do the birds benefit, but I get to enjoy a dash of color late into the season. I placed them in a northern exposure in sandy soil so I haven't had a problem with suckering (yet?!). Cheerful on those gray days!

Latin Name Pronunciation: sim-for-ih-kar'pos

Easy to grow in full sun and almost any kind of soil (plants prefer even moisture in the South).

Fertilize just once, in early spring, with a granular, balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10.

Plants are multi-stemmed and compact with a dense, bushy habit. Prune as necessary either in late winter or early spring.
