I have been driving past this abandoned site that used to have a home on it and have noticed this beautiful shrub with these gorgeous white berries. Needless to say, the temptation to go out and dig it up was there day after day but I have refrained! Now thanks to you I know what I can order from the nursery and behave myself. Great article. Thanks!

The home that I grew up in had about 3 1/2 acres of the most FUN property on which a child could grow up. Many fruit bearing trees, many wild flowers, berry bushes, you name it, we grew up around it! When I saw the picture of the Snowberry, it brought back so many fond memories! We kids ( 8 out of 10 left ) always joke around that MyMa always told us everything growing out in the wild part of the property was 'poisen'. Well, I guess in the case of the Snowberry, she was right! We had so many of these bushes on our property!! I can remember picking them and squashing them, but never eating them - heeding MyMa's warning! Thanks for the memory!
