Symphoricarpos Magical Candy ('Kolmcan') (PBR)


5 year guarantee Perfect for pollinators
2 litre pot £19.99

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any fertile, reasonably well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The arching stems of this deciduous shrub are studded with clusters of small, nectar-rich pink flowers (which are loved by the pollinators), but it's at its showiest in autumn, when the fleshy pink berries start to appear. It's and incredibly easy and undemanding plant, which makes it ideal for a low-maintenance garden, and although it prefers a sunnier spot, it will also be quite happy in a little shade.

  • Garden care: In February or March remove any misplaced or crossing branches to maintain a permanent, healthy framework. Maintain species grown as informal, flowering hedges by cutting back the flowered shoots immediately after flowering to strong buds or young lower growth.
  • Harmful if eaten
