Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Magical Avalanche is covered in plump, snow white berries that ripen late in the summer, swelling into pearls. As the leaves fall, each arching stem is adorned with fruits that persist well into fall. A new selection from a line of dwarf, colorful snowberries from Kolster, BV in The Netherlands, Avalanche is spectacular en mass, but will also make a great addition to the garden and is an excellent cut flower. Use Avalanche as a taller border plant, along path edges and driveways to light up your garden in the late afternoon and evening.  Each fruit glows like a little lantern in the evening light and moonlight.
