The Q&A Archives: Unknown White Berries Snowball Bush
Question: My father gave me a small bush from his farm in Pennsylvania. I have been unable to find out what it is. It gets small pink flowers that develope into clusters of small white balls in the fall. My father called it a snowball bush but I haven't been able to verify that. Can you help?
Answer: The shrub Symphoricarpos albus is sometimes called Snowberry and would match that description. It is a native plant in Pennsylvania as well as a garden subject.
