Common Snowberry
Goji Berry

Common 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.

Goji Berry is a woody, deciduous perennial known for its hearty, bright orange-red berries. Goji Berry typically produces light lavender flowers from June through September, with fruit maturation taking place between August and October. Goji Berries are delicious, believed to be nutrient rich, high in antioxidants, and often called a super fruit.

Many describe their flavour as being like a tart cherry tomato.

Goji has a very unusual growth habit where it is somewhat like a vine, but also very much a tree. Many growers remark on its unusual and attractive qualities with the purple flowers and bright red berries contributing to its appeal.
