Western Snowberry
Hazeldean Rose

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.

Hazeldean Rose is a perfect shrub for those who enjoy cut flowers. It blooms vigorously in late spring to early summer and is smothered in fragrant yellow double blooms that attract bees. The Hazeldean Rose is extremely cold weather hardy, making it a rare yellow rose well suited for the prairies. Resistant to blackspot, the Hazeldean Rose got her name from Robert Burns' poetry as it is "the prize of them all".
