Common snowberry gets its name from the attractive white berries that appear in late summer. The plant spreads by rhizomes to form dense thickets popular with birds and small mammals for food, shelter and nesting sites. The berries are mildly toxic to humans. Snowberry was once popular in old-fashioned dooryard gardens.
