Snowberry is a suckering shrub that has arching stems and broad-ovate dark green leaves. In the summer pink bell-shaped flowers bloom, followed by showy white berries which persist and are especially noticeable after the leaves drop in the fall. These berries become slightly pink on the side which is exposed to sunlight. This variety is a dwarf, only growing up to 2 feet tall, but can spread up to 8 feet wide.
