White Snowberry, symphoricarpos ‘white hedge’, has dainty pink flowers that appear in July. It is accented with blue-green foliage, and then produces large white berries in autumn.
Snowberry is unique because few shrubs produce white berries!
Hummingbirds love the flowers, and in the fall the white berries are an excellent food for birds. The berries hang on all season so they offer winter and spring landscape interest.
Snowberry is good for holding soil on steep bank and prefers light sun and moist conditions. This plant works best when planted in masses or mixed with several other plants of similar height.
White Snowberry is a dense, twiggy shrub that grows 5-6 feet tall and 3-6 feet wide, and it spreads by suckers underground.
This plant prefers sun to medium shade, tolerates any soil, and is easy to transplant. It should be pruned before new growth begins.
It is a delicate looking plant with a quietly enchanting quality. The egg white berries seem to float lightly in the air, all about the plant. This and their small, scattered leaf pattern, give the plant a low but airy quality!
