Searching Genus for SYMPHORICARPOS

17 species of deciduous shrubs native to China and the Americas with bell-shaped, but inconspicuous flowers. They are chiefly grown for their abundant display of white or rose-coloured berries, which appear in autumn and often last into winter. Some are perfect for hedging and all grow well in shade even among the roots of overhanging trees. Quite hardy and will grow in all types of soils.
