Magical Treasure™ Coralberry is a cultivated hybrid of several North American Symphoricarpos species. It is a cultivar that belongs in the Doorenbos Group of Coralberries, which is a group of hybrids that were developed by a Dutch horticulturist, G.A. Doorenbos, as ornamental landscape plants. This selection is a compact, miniature variety with eye-catching clusters of plump, dark pink, berry-like fruits along upright stems which persist into October. It is a trouble-free shrub with a vigorous nature, suckering freely from the base to form a dense interior with an overall rounded shape. Its small, oval, blue-green leaves are an attractive backdrop for the tiny, pink, bell-shaped flowers in spring that give way to the gorgeous show of pink berries for late season interest.
Magical Treasure™ Coralberry looks lovely when planted in groups along garden pathways, in shrub borders, foundation plantings, in cutting gardens, and even in containers. They are an attractive choice for hard to mow slopes and can help to stabilize the soil.
