 8-15 x 6-10 wide, (seed propagated). A native shrub to the northern Great Plains of the U.S., Silver Buffalo Berry is a tough, extremely cold hardy shrub excellent for use as an ornamental shrub, in wind breaks and in confined areas where it can be limbed up for use as a small tree. Although xeric once established, Silver Buffalo Berry will be taller and faster growing when not kept too dry. A highly recommended substitute for Russian Olive or New Mexico Privet.

Buffaloberries are edible for humans. They are quite sour, and afterwards leave the mouth a little dry. A touch of frost will sweeten the berries. The berries can be made into jelly, jam, or syrup, or prepared like cranberry sauce from the forefrost berries. Native Americans used the berry to spice up their buffallo meat. Hence the name.

 Silver Buffalo Berry has separate male and female plants. The female plants bear heavy crops of bright red berries that are both ornamental and excellent for feeding songbirds. Male and female plants are indistinguishable as seedlings, so order 3 or more to ensure berry set.
