Plant Highlights

The San Bruno Mt. Coffeeberry is a small lowgrowing, evergreen shrub that has stunning red twigs and bark, offset by intense green foliage. This shrub is a cultivar from the San Bruno Mountain area, and is ideal for small, 5'ft x 5'ft cool spaces in the garden or hedge. San Bruno requires minimal water but is less tolerant of heat and drought than other varieties of coffeeberry. The shrub flowers in the mid to late spring, with berries fading from bright red to black in the fall. Pollinators will flock to the small flowers in spring, and birds to the berries in summer and fall.
