Chokeberry (Aronia arbutifolia) is a native berried plant that holds on to its red fruit over the winter. This wetland shrub, true to its name, has fruits that are quite bitter. Because of this, birds don’t eat them until they’ve undergone several freeze/thaw cycles. Thus, the berries provide both winter food as well as color. A chokeberry to try is the hardy, self-fertile ‘Viking’ black chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa 'Viking'). Its extra-large black berries persist through the winter, feeding the first returning robins.
Annuals such as sweet alyssum make a wonderful white edging with its dense, tiny, fragrant white flowers. If cut back they will bloom all season. The perennial green and white variegated lilyturf (Liriope muscari) is another of my favorites for edging beds.
