Symphoricarpus






SYMPHORICARPUS OCCIDENTALIS.--Wolf Berry. North America. This species

has larger and more freely-produced flowers, and smaller fruit than the

commonly-cultivated plant.



S. RACEMOSUS (_syn Symphoria racemosus_).--Snowberry. North America,

1817. One of the commonest shrubs in English gardens, with small, oval,

entire leaves, and neat little racemes of pretty pink flowers, succeeded

by the familiar snow-white berries, and for which the shrub is so

remarkable.



S. VULGARIS.--Coral Berry, Common St. Peter's Wort. North America, 1730.

This is readily distinguished by its showy and freely-produced coral

berries. There is a very neat and much sought after variety, having

conspicuous green and yellow leaves, and named S. vulgaris foliis

variegatis.



The Snowberries are of no great value as ornamental shrubs, but owing to

their succeeding well in the very poorest and stoniest of soils, and

beneath the shade and drip of trees, it is to be recommended that they

are not lost sight of. They grow and spread freely, and are therefore

useful where unchecked and rampant shrub growth is desirable.
