Snowberry
Western Sand Cherry

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.

Western Sand Cherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green foliage and beautiful white blossoms. You and the wildlife will both love its small dark red to purple cherries.

Due to its small stature and spreading qualities, Western Sandcherry is suitable as an underplanting or groundcover. Sandcherry is also a great pollinizer for plums or Nanking Cherry.

Many people graft plum and cherry varieties to Western Sand Cherry.
