The Rampant Gardener

The Rampant Gardener

Symphoricarpos is a small genus of about 15 species of deciduous shrubs in the family Caprifoliaceae. All but one are natives of North America and Central America; the one remaining is from western China. Its common names in English are Snowberry and Waxberry. It is a member of the Honeysuckle Family, the Caprifoliaceae.
Common Snowberry is a popular ornamental shrub in gardens, grown for its decorative white fruit.   The leaves are 1.5 – 5cm long, rounded, entire or with one or two lobes at the base. The flowers are small, greenish-white to pink, in small clusters of 5 – 15 together in most species, solitary or in pairs in some (e.g. S. microphyllus). The fruit are conspicuous, 1– 2 cm in diameter, soft and white
Common Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus) is an important winter food source for quail, pheasant and grouse, but is considered poisonous to humans. The berries contain the isoquinoline alkaloid chelidonine, as well as other alkaloids. Ingesting the berries causes mild symptoms of vomiting, dizziness, and slight sedation in children.
