Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

There aren’t many ornamentals that rival the performance of Pink Carpet in late summer and early fall. The perfect choice for grouping along a garden path, these small mounding shrubs look like miniature pink gum balls exploded all over them when in fruit! Plump, rounded berries form in late August and continue into early fall for an extraordinary display. Great for porch and patio pots or mixed borders, snow berries are tolerant of a variety of soils, but perform best with some clay.
