Snowberry is small deciduous shrub with characteristic white to pink flowers and clusters of white fruit.

This North American native species is very adaptable, and can be used for erosion control in riparian and restoration areas. Snowberry's fruit attracts wildlife, and livestock can consume the berries without issue.

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. Thiessen saskatoons are one of the most productive saskatoons great in pies, preserves or eating fresh. However, they are most popular with u-pick operations because their height gets to about 16ft tall which is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.
