Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Snow Berries add interest to the garden at a time when most perennials and shrubs are exhibiting a tired look. And, as an added bonus, they make excellent cuts for floral arrangements.

Clusters of white berries with a dusting of pink present on upright branches in September and October – a time when most gardens are beginning to lose interest as cooler weather approaches. In its natural form, Autumn Blush can be effective when planted in irregular groupings or as an informal hedge for a readily available supply of cut stems for floral arrangements in late summer and early fall.

With these improved varieties from Plants Nouveau, new found uses for snow berries abound for natural shrub borders and late season interest.
