Very tolerant of any soil, native on limestone and clay. Best if pruned in late fall or early spring. Medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application.
The vivid color of this coral berry makes it superior to other varieties. The vibrant hot pink fruit is much brighter and showier in the landscape than that of other coral berry cultivars. Amethyst has good branching and a neat habit, unlike the rangy forms seen in many older types. This is a great plant to include in the home garden. It provides vivid color in mid-summer, and works nicely in informal woodland type gardens. It has been reported to be somewhat deer resistant. Winner of the 2013 Cut Flower of the Year by the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers.Amethyst™ Symphoricarpos x doorenbosii 'Kordes'

This is a beautiful plant which looks delicate but is extremely hardy. The berries are spectacular! It's a must have. Looks great in a bright contrasting pot in the summer.Barbara Santos, Massachusetts, United States, 9 years ago
