Snowberry vs Common Wild Rose

Symphoricarpos albus

Rosa woodsii

Snowberry
Common Wild Rose

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.

Also known as Wood Rose, Common Wild Rose has attractive pink roses and edible bright red rosehips.

This tough, native shrub is a beautiful, low-maintenance addition to any garden. Common Wild Rose is very similar to Alberta (Prickly) Wild Rose but with fewer thorns.
