Symphoricarpos albus – snowberry

Strictly speaking, this one is for the birds! The white berries are edible but hardy flavorful. Even wildlife will leave them alone until everything else tastier is gone. Count this one as emergency food. On the bright side, enjoy the pearl white fruits long into the winter season on this native shrub. Expect 2’ in sun, 5’ in shade and a running habit in organically rich soils which is useful for binding gentle slopes together.
