at Digging Dog
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.
Size: 2-1/2'–5' 0" high x 2-1/2'–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 3.
Symphoricarpos albus (S-0795)
