Symphoricarpos- Snowberry

Deciduous shrubs bearing large berries in autumn.

Situation:

As they tolerate a great deal of shade, they are often used as undergrowth; but in the sun the berries are produced in greater profusion.

Soil:

Will grow practically anywhere.

Propagation:

From suckers or by division. The species can also be grown from seed.

Symphoricarpos albus var laevigatus, common snowberry: Height to 1.5 m, spreading habit; rather insignificant pink flowers early summer to early autumn, followed by a profusion of white berries.

Symphoricarpos X chenaultii: Height to 2 m; rose-red flowers in early to mid summer; rose-red berries. Particularly fine berries are produced by ‘Magic Berry’, from lilac-red fruits; ‘Mother of Pearl’ has pearly berries, and ‘White Hedge’ has white. These are the most beautiful garden strains.
