Silver Buffalo Berry
Hazeldean Rose

Silver Buffalo Berry is a cold hardy, ornamental shrub that is commonly used in the first row of shelterbelts instead of caragana or lilac. 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. It is also commonly planted for its ornamental and winter interest.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Note: this berry has mixed reviews when fresh, but makes a desirable jam or jelly with what is described as a clove and pear taste.

Hazeldean Rose is a perfect shrub for those who enjoy cut flowers. It blooms vigorously in late spring to early summer and is smothered in fragrant yellow double blooms that attract bees. The Hazeldean Rose is extremely cold weather hardy, making it a rare yellow rose well suited for the prairies. Resistant to blackspot, the Hazeldean Rose got her name from Robert Burns' poetry as it is "the prize of them all".
