For years, I lusted after 'Quicksilver' for its foliage, whose bright silveriness is unique in shrubs hardy in Zone 6 and colder.
This year, I finally calmed down enough about the shrub's leaves to realize that its flowers are exceptional, too: Their honey fragrance commandeers the garden. I hear that they mature to edible fruits that combine the flowers' pale yellow with the leaves' metallic shine. (Another common name for this shrub is silverberry.) And their taste? Stay tuned.
