Short stature shrub that spreads via rhizomes. Plant this to fill in hedge gaps or create a living boundary. Bees are fond of the little pink flowers, and the white berries provide fall and winter interest. Snowberry creates important habitat in the lower levels of a thicket or hedge. Snowberry will slowly expand out from where it is planted, so it is a great choice for wildlife and restoration plantings might not be the best choice for traditional garden settings.
