Symphoricarpos Pinky Promise™

Ideal for mixed borders and container plantings, these short, mounding plants brighten any space with their plump, gum-ball like pink berries in late summer and early fall

There aren’t many ornamentals that rival the performance of Pinky Promise 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, snowberries are tolerant of a variety of soils but perform best with some clay. Sold exclusively through the Bloomin' Easy®️ Plant Collection.
