Snowberry vs Honey Queen Raspberry

Symphoricarpos albus

Rubus Honey Queen

Snowberry
Honey Queen Raspberry

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.

Honey Queen Raspberry is known for its sweet honey flavour and unique yellow colour. Its berries are soft and medium-sized, nice for picking and eating in the summer.

Honey Queen was developed in Rocky Mountain House by Robert Erskin and is very winter hardy. Canes are yellowish, arched and moderately spiny.

Honey Queen should be trellised upright for best results.
