Native to North America, the snowberry bush – also known as ice apple - is a flowering plant that grows in a variety of habitats. It is a deciduous shrub that spreads and forms a dense thicket.
Homeowners and landscapers use snowberry bushes as ornamental shrubs due to the shrub’s dainty pink flowers. During winter, the white snowberries stand out against the bush’s bare branches.
Snowberry bushes grow well in full sun and tolerate various soil types. With a shallow root system, the snowberry bush is great for helping control erosion on slopes.
Snowberries are food for a variety of birds, including quail and pheasants. Add snowberry bushes to your home garden and enjoy all it has to offer.
