Symphoricarpos albus – snowberry

A very nice native shrub that produces small white berries that seem to pop when you crush them. Animals tend to leave them uneaten until the very last, so you watch the fruits progress from pure white to shriveled brown husks. Snowberries do best in dappled shade in organically rich, moist soil; then they spread by underground roots making a nice colony usually no more than 4 -5’ high.
