Common Snowberry
Creeping Juniper

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.

Creeping Juniper is a native coniferous shrub. This hardy evergreen is commonly used by landscapers to provide texture and ground cover beneath larger trees.

Creeping Juniper typically stays under 18 inches in height and, while it will spread, the rate is very manageable.

Growing in some of the worst soil and rocky conditions, this shrub has a pleasant fragrance, a blue-green foliage which deepens to a plum-colored tint. The berries are a good food source for wildlife and can even be used to make gin.
