Snowberry vs Mock Orange

Symphoricarpos albus

Philadelphus coronarius

Snowberry
Mock Orange

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.

Mock Orange's white flowers look and smell like those of the orange, with a hint of jasmine in the scent. It is an excellent ornamental shrub. People love the contrast between its flowers and dark green leaves.

Mock Orange is suitable for planting alone or in groups as a hedge or privacy screen.
