Coralberry are vibrant, spreading shrubs that grow especially well in open meadows. The white flowers produce an abundance of attractive purple berries. While these berries are attractive to wildlife, they can be poisonous to humans when consumed in large amounts. Deer will generally leave these shrubs alone, but birds frequently visit the berry-laden shrubs.
There are few serious insect or disease issues that plague Coralberry. Some mildews may occur in damp climates, but are rarely threatening to the health of the shrub.
