winter berries in zone 4

thedancingemu(5)April 9, 2009

My boyfriend and i are wanting to plant some bushy plants (preferably small bushy trees and largish bushes) along an old fence line, and we want it to have at least a little color year 'round. We'll probably be planting some dogwood or something with colorful twigs, but we'd also like to find a fruiting shrub that would hold onto its berries through the winter, if birds and wildlife will eat it, it's a plus.
