General description of Symphoricarpos chenaultii plants:
The Pink Snowberry, Symphoricarpos chenaultii, is a vigorous, medium sized, deciduous hedging shrub. It forms dense thickets without any attention and so its often planted to provide cover for game and other wildlife. The white flowers are abundant in summer and ripen into plentiful pink berries. These aren't of much interest to birds, so they decorate the slender, arching branches until the winter frosts. The berries are edible, but they don't have much flavour and eating too many may give you an upset stomach.
History & uses of Snowberry:
Symphoricarpos is a central American plant.
