A resilient little berry that is prominent in the dead of winter in many regions of the world as it has a tendency to hang on tightly through windy and cold winter storms.
The snowberry or Symphoticarpos is derived of two words from the Greek language. Sumphorein meaning "to bear together", and karpos, meaning fruit. Very fitting since it has closely packed clusters of berries.
The snowberry is a staple food for many birds in Winter but is known to be poisonous to humans and can cause mild stomach upset and dizziness if ingested.

Snowberries add Texture
A great way to add a touch of texture to your bouquets is with berries. Great for bouquets with a wintery feel or more romantic occasions like wedding bouquets. The curve of the branch and the bunching berries will draw in attention and help guide the eye around the bouquet helping to enjoy all of it as a whole.
