     This shrub has the sweetest of all the little pink spring bloomers.  It naturally forms a mound, wider than it is tall, and the blooms appear toward the ends of the twigs.


     These flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and Snowberry also is a larval host to numerous moth species. Small mammals also eat the white, waxy fruits, which also are adorable and provide distinct winter interest.


     If you're looking for an unusual native shrub, maybe try snowberry. :)   Remember to prune every few years to encourage more abundant fruit.
