|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.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate grower to 4 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||Native, snowberries are essential to North American wild landscapes because they naturalize so well. A superbly beautiful addition to wildlife habitat gardens as a late season food source for many species. Improved color and form has boosted them into high status in traditional shrub borders for late season interest. Plant as a low informal hedge or arrange in irregular groupings. A fresh new candidate for foundation planting. Add to any garden for a ready supply of colorful cut berry sprays for autumn decorating.|
