Darn Gorgeous Rose
Western Snowberry

Developed by DNA Gardens, Darn Gorgeous Rose is an ornamental shrub that produces radiant red teacup blossoms throughout the summer.

If you are looking to add a splash of colour to your home garden, Darn Gorgeous Rose is for you.

Our growers think this is truly a "Darn Gorgeous" rose and is a pleasure to see growing in our fields.

Like the Common Snowberry, the Western Snowberry is a small shrub with pink flowers useful for feeding livestock and preventing erosion. Unlike the common species, however, the Western Snowberry is much more suited to wet conditions, capable of persevering through poor soil drainage and occasional flooding.

After the Snowberry's flowers have bloomed, it produces berries which often last on the plant through winter. These berries are toxic to humans, but livestock and local wildlife love them! Those hoping to attract wildlife to their property can plant Snowberry and expect to see animals foraging on it much later in the year than other plants.
