Symphoricarpos albus

Common name: Snowberry

Native plant

Snowberry is a plant with large white berries that hold on for most of the winter. Birds will eat the fruit as an emergency food in the wintertime. It matures to just 3 feet or less in height and will grow in dry shade under oak trees, both rare and highly sought out characteristics among those who landscape with native plants. This plant will sucker and create a thicket under ideal conditions.
