Snow Berries


These inedible Snow Berries can be found all over, in clumps around damp, swampy areas (which are plentiful around her this time of year!). They usually bear the fruit in the late summer, and the berries hang around long after the leaves have left the plant. I took this picture before this happened, cause once the leaves are gone, its much less attractive to photograph ;)

  2. I've never heard of snowberries, either. Does anything -- animal, bird? -- eat them? Sometimes you wonder about Nature's motives in putting something on the Earth!

    They are lovely, though, and I guess that is motive enough.

  4. I love snowberries, but they are very invasive.

  5. Those are beautiful berries, hadn't heard of them before. They would be beautiful as a filler in a mostly red bouquet.
