Snowberry
Blueberry

Snowberry is a 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.

Common Wild Blueberry is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the tasty little berries as much as we do.

These blueberries are grown from locally collected seed and produce small, sweet berries in August. The fruit is terrific for fresh eating and cooking.

Note: We are selling wild blueberries native to the prairies, not their bigger cousins that grow as a higher bush elsewhere in Canada.
