Amethyst coralberry (Symphoricarpos  × doorenbosii 'Kordes')
Synonyms:  Symphoricarpos x doorenbosii 'Amethyst'
Genus:  Symphoricarpos
This hybrid produces vivid deep purple-pink fruit from late summer on. It forms a thicket (which may be sheared) 3 to 5 feet high and wide. 
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Amethyst coralberry has persistent, opaque berries that attract birds and flowers that attract bees.
