Abundant, pure white fruits.

Symphoricarpos Magical® Avalanche

Plump, snow white berries ripen late in the summer, swelling into pearls. As the leaves fall, each arching stem is adorned with fruits that persist into fall

With a cascading form, Magical®️ Avalanche will be covered in plump, snow white berries that ripen late in the summer, swelling into pearls. As the leaves fall, each arching stem is adorned with fruits that persist well into fall. A new selection from a line of dwarf, colorful snowberries from Kolster, BV in The Netherlands, Avalanche is spectacular in groupings, but will also make a great specimen and is also an excellent cut flower. Use Avalanche as a taller border plant, along path edges and driveways to light up your garden in the late afternoon and evening.  Each fruit glows like a little lantern in the evening light.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
