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.

Note: This difficult to grow species is not regularly scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. If you don't seedlings available for purchase, try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Blue Treasure Haskap is a late season cultivar, ideal for cooler climates, and a favorite from Berries Unlimited. The berries are delectably sweet and ideal for fresh eating, but can also be made into jam, juice, and wine.

Blue Treasure is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Kawai is a great companion variety.
