Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

With these improved varieties from Plants Nouveau, new found uses for snow berries abound for natural shrub borders and late season interest. Delicate flowers bloom from the ground to far reaching tips of every stem in late spring, followed by white, pearl-like fruits in late summer to early fall – making Milky Way the perfect choice for cutting gardens. In keeping with its form, plant in irregular groupings or as an informal hedge for a readily available supply of cut stems for floral arrangements.
