Produces tons of white berries as pure as snow

Snowberry 'Galaxy' shrubs are revolutionizing landscapes with their abundant colors late in the season, when other flowering and berry producing shrubs are dormant. Towards the end of the summer white flowers emerge all over Snowberry 'Galaxies' popping against their gorgeous, deep green foliage.

Once the flowers drop, large white berries start to grow in their place. These bright berries pop against the barren landscape in the fall and winter, enchanting every onlooker. Snowberries are heavy and cause branches to arch over in a weeping fashion for a unique look. Once snow dusts the curved branches the shrubs look even better!

The show doesn't stop there, because Snowberries are an excellent food source for birds and wildlife during the winter. Imagine sitting warm inside with your hot cocoa while enjoying an entertaining wildlife show right out your window.

Pick a few branches for unique holiday decorations. Place a few branches in vases or on the mantel, so the white berries can attract attention to your wonderful displays, or use a few in winter wreaths and hang them on your front door to greet guests.

Snowberry 'Galaxy' shrubs mock the cold by growing anywhere in the country, even up North. These low maintenance shrubs grow in a variety of poor soils, plant yours and forget them until the flowering and berry shows begin.

Not only are they effortless to grow, but due to their compact nature they fit in any landscape. Snowberries grow 2 to 3 feet tall, and 2 to 3 feet wide, making them perfect to plant in rows, around foundations, and as accent pieces in the garden.

Due to the unique pure white color of snowberries, and attractive flowers they are selling out fast. Get yours before they're gone!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Galaxy™ Snowberry



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Galaxy™ Snowberry .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Galaxy™ Snowberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Galaxy™ Snowberry again after the transplant is complete.

Are these Berries edible, and if so how do they taste?
Megllete on Sep 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is what I found out. Common snowberry (S. 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.
