Hi Jan, Thanks for your great article. It was interesting. A couple years ago I planted the "Charming Fantasy"-TM Snowberry,(Symphoricarpos, Kolcharm) which I found on sale, the end of the season, at a nursery. The berries are beautiful. They are white, with a little pink tint. I wish I would have planted it right against the house, so I could enjoy it even more and I forgot to clip a stem-(they say that they last for 2 weeks in a floral arrangement.) It's tag says, fast growing, but mine has not grown very much, at least it is very healthy looking-( loaded with berries.)

Thank you all for the nice comments. I don't actually grow it myself, but if I can find room, I would like to.

Nice Jan. I grow both the regular and the coralberry. The white berries look like small marshmallows.

Hmmm, it this is the same stuff I have growing in my yard (and the local people do call it "snowberry"), it will take over. I'm trying to figure out how to get it under control. And I did not know the berries were poisonous, so thank you very much for the article.

Wow, I ran into Bernard McMahon when I was writing my article about the history of mail order catalogs - how odd to find him again here! Fascinating article, Jan!
