Coralberry is part of the oak savanna where it creates low, dense thickets in dry areas that are in full sun or light shade. This plant is native further south. The white flowers are flushed with pink and bloom in early spring, but they are not particularly sh ... owy. However, the pea size fruit form large clusters of bright purple and persist through winter. Birds eat the fruit before spring. Coralberry hosts a beautiful little sphinx butterfly.
