Angela’s Garden Notes:

For gardeners who are on the lookout for shrubs that provide winter interest after most flowers and leaves are gone, Snow Berries rate high on the list.  This is the perfect plant to provide months of winter garden interest.  These new, compact forms are suitable for a more prominent place in the front border. Snow Berries are especially beautiful with a light dusting of snow and they are spectacular en masse.
