Common Snowberry
Common 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.

Common Juniper is a small, coniferous shrub with scale-like needles upon maturity. Typically growing to 3 or 4 feet in height, this variety will not spread like Creeping Juniper.

This hardy evergreen is commonly used by landscapers to provide texture and ground cover beneath larger trees or in beds around the foundations of buildings.

It is wide spreading and produces small, berry-like cones that is a great food source for wildlife. These cones grow in green and change to glaucous to black as they ripen.

The Common Juniper has even been used to make the popular alcoholic beverage, gin.
