Magical Melody Coral Berry
Perfect cuts for fall weddings!
This shrub will most definitely add a magical melody to your late season garden! Magical Melody Coral Berry (SYMPHORICARPOS DORNSBOSII MAGICAL MELODY) is a beautiful cool season shrub with lovely arching branches that look striking in a mixed border or own their own as a specimen.
The 3-5 foot tall and wide shrub is covered from spring through fall in lovely green leaves that drape off of the arching stems. In the summer the flowers start blooming in June, but the real show begins in late August and lasts until October. That is when the berries come out in profusion. The blueberry-sized fruits start out a creamy white but soon get coral-pink freckles. As the weather cools, the berries begin to blush deeper shades of coral-pink.
The berries aren’t edible, but boy, are they gorgeous! They add extra depth and color to the fall garden. Not only that, but they are excellent cuts for indoor arrangements. The blushing berries are highly sought after for fall wedding bouquets. Birds and wildlife love them too!
Make sure that you order several. They are stunners in the back of the border and make a grand statement in mass plantings. They are perfect for wild woodland gardens (or those garden that aspire to be!) and excel at woods edge, where they are a great transition from manicured lawn to woodland.
