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 Madawaska Raspberry is a productive, early-fruiting variety with dark red berries that are juicy with a medium sweet flavor. They are very winter-hardy with great disease resistance. The berries are great for fresh eating and for baking or preserves.

The Madawaska Raspberry is a primocane variety. Prune stalks down each winter or early spring to get higher fruit yields and easier harvesting.
