An undeniable color break through, the dark-magenta berries of Magical® Temptation, coupled with its compact habit are certain to earn it a prominent place in the front border or along a garden path. Beginning in mid-September and continuing through October, clusters of richly colored fruit will not only contribute to fall interest, but will also provide you with a readily available supply of cut stems for floral arrangements. With these improved varieties from Plants Nouveau, new found uses for snowberries abound for natural shrub borders and late season interest. Plant in irregular groupings or as an informal hedge.
