Magic Berry Snowberry (Symphoricarpos x doorenbosii ‘Magic Berry’)

Magic Berry Snowberry

The Snowberry ‘Magic Berry’, Symphoricarpos x doorenbosii ‘Magic Berry’, is a compact, spreading hybrid that has pink blooms in spring. In summer it has an abundance of rose-pink fruit showing color already in July.

These masses of pinkish-purple berries line each branch in autumn. This striking crop of ‘Magic Berry’ fruits mature to deep claret in autumn, and may be retained well into winter. The berries are not considered edible.

This compact, dense, thicket-forming deciduous shrub has ovate, dark-green leaves that turn dull yellow in autumn. The short racemes of pale pink flowers appear in summer. It grows well in full sun to partial shade.

Its berries are dramatic against very dark green foliage and even more remarkable in snow!

Use as a specimen, in groups, and on banks for erosion control. This plant is often planted over large areas of slopes or banks as a hardy ground cover. ‘Magic Berry’ is also mildew resistant.
