Common Snowberry
Dutchmans pipe

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.

The Dutchman’s Pipe is a fast growing, deciduous, woody, climbing vine. Featuring large heart-shaped leaves that overlap and often hide the flowers. The Dutchman’s Pipe namesake comes from the long yellow-green, brown or purple flowers that flare at the end, resembling Dutch smoking pipes.

The Dutchman’s Pipe will make a great screen or shade in your urban landscape, but does require support from a trellis or a fence. To control the growth, cut back in late winter.
