Favoring dry rocky haunts from Nova Scotia west to British Columbia, south to California then east to Virginia, this bushy native possesses a neat rounded appearance. Anchored by sturdy roots, the dense easily grown deciduous thicket produces hollow arching branches with opposite, irregularly lobed green leaves and a bounty of clustered small bell-style pink flowers at the leaf axils, mesmerizing both hummingbirds and butterflies. Globe-shaped decorative white berries persist on naked twigs throughout the winter and provide welcome food for birds and other wildlife, while various plant parts have been used medicinally to alleviate morning sickness, skin rashes and sore eyes. Tolerant of most soil types, including wet ones, Snowberry can be massed or naturalized, where it easily restores riparian habitats, abates erosion and spruces up your garden.

Blooms June-July

Size: 2-1/2'–5' high x 2-1/2'–5' wide; hardy to zone 3.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
