Silver Buffalo Berry
Silver Buffalo Berry
(new stock expected: fall of 2017)
Silver Buffalo Berry is a cold hardy, ornamental shrub. It features subtle yellow flowers, smooth grey bark, and red fruit. On occasion orange fruit is produced and rarely a yellow fruit. Please note: we regularly collect the rare yellow and orange fruit to use for our seed source.
Long-lived and slow growing, Silver Buffalo Berry is commonly found around sloughs, in coulees, and on light soils across the prairies, and grows best in full sun.
Buyers can enjoy increased bird life to their property, as this shrub acts as a habitat plant.
This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.
Note: this berry tastes terrible fresh, but makes a highly desirable jam or jelly with what is described as a clove and pear taste.
