Snowberry
Common Juniper

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.

Common Juniper is a small coniferous shrub. This hardy evergreen is very commonly used by landscapers to provide texture and ground cover beneath larger trees or in beds around the foundations of buildings.

Common Juniper typically grows to 3 or 4 feet in height and will not spread like Creeping Juniper.
