It is easy to appreciate Coralberry’s understated beauty when looking for a plant that can survive and thrive on its own. It is a diamond in the rough that requires no maintenance other than controlling its need to spread. Of course, its ability to cover larger areas may also be a benefit, depending on your preference. Its berries are pretty and appreciated by birds. It will adapt to full sun locations with additional water, but it really flourishes in bright to deep shade gardens, where it needs no additional irrigation after establishment. Right at home in informal gardens, it naturally stays under three feet tall, making it a perfect lower-level shrub.
