Silverberry grows wild through the mountains. It is best known for its evergreen toughness, ease of care, and fragrant spring flowers.  We figured out how to add a gold edge to the blue foliage and still maintain its inherited native traits.  It’s a bit outside the autumn-colored box because this new native shrub looks bright all the time, but it shows best now through winter.  It’s a much better choice than the common Red Tipped Photinia for hardiness, low water usage, with little to no care needed.  Once rooted into your garden feel free to cut it off of all care and this evergreen will continue to thrive.  It quickly trims into a privacy hedge or may remain a free-flowing shrub to head height.  It is not attractive to deer or javelinas.
