A fresh new candidate for foundation planting. Add to any garden for a ready supply of colorful cut berry sprays for autumn decorating.|

|Care||Grows easily in a wide range of soil types. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new spring growth. Prune in early spring as desired to control size.|
|Lore||Symphoricarpos are native to North America and were first improved by the breeding work of G.A. Doorenbos in the 1940's. The native habitat runs from Nova Scotia to Alberta, south to Minnesota and Virginia and in the western North America from Southwestern Alaska to Southern California. Snowberry is a member of the Honeysuckle family and got its name from the inside of the fruit which looks like snow when broken open.|
