Symphoricarpos orbiculatus

Symphoricarpos orbiculatus
Common name coralberry
Family caprifoliaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z2-7?)
Flowers pink-white (summer)
Size 2-5'
Light sun-part shade

Suckering shrub featuring bell-shaped flowers in summer followed by red berries in autumn. Native from the eastern U.S. to Mexico, which makes the upper hardiness zone designation mentioned by several online sources somewhat suspect. We bought ours at a local nursery who described it as Texas native and a good plant for the Houston area (which is decidedly warmer than zone 7). So I tucked it in a spot where it will receive some shade, and am hoping for the best.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: right fence border
