Coralberry, also known as Indian Currant, is a distinctive heirloom shrub from the honeysuckle family, celebrated for its unique purplish-red fruit that adorns the plant. This shrub features yellow-white flowers that may exhibit subtle pink tints, complemented by its dull green or blue-green leaves. The Coralberry is a charming addition to any garden, offering a splash of color with its ornamental berries and attracting wildlife with its dense foliage and fruit. Coralberry's fruit is not really recommended for consumption. It contains saponins, which give the fleshy fruit a bitter taste.

Plant in fall for a spring germination, 1/4" deep, tamp down the soil and much the seed bed. When sowing at other times of the year or indoors, soak in water for 24 hours, then warm stratify for 120 days and cold stratify for 180 days. Afterwards, so 1/4" deep and keep moist until germination. Transplant to a container or into the garden when the seedlings are several inches tall.
