This selection of a dense, deciduous shrub from the East Coast is easy to grow, very hardy and tolerant of poor soils. The flowers are small, bell-shaped and are not particularly showy although they do attract many pollinators. As the name Symphoricarpus orbiculatus 'Foliis Variegatis' ('Variegatus') suggests, the leaves are variegated. In this case they are edged with an irregular cream-colored band which is distinctive. It is after the leaves fall, however, that the shrub becomes especially lovely as the persistent dark red-purple fruits are eye-catching in the winter landscape.

Late summer to early autumn.  6 ft. x 6 ft.
