Dwarf Snowberry Bush

My Dwarf Snowberry bush is 3 years old, and while it bloomed beautifully this summer, the flowers are gone and the berries that formed are rotting or drying on the bush and now is getting dead material on the ends of the branches. Is the plant dying or is there something I can do for it?

Snowberry is susceptible to some diseases.

Trim any dead and damaged material and dispose of.

Snowberry Bushes

Parts of my snowberry look like twigs and look like are they’re dead. What can I do? We live in a hot climate and they are watered regularly on drip system. Thank you!!

You should prune out the dead branches by cutting them at their base (where the dead branch attaches to a larger branch or the main stem). This will benefit the shrub's health and allow it to grow back stronger. The best time to prune is in the late winter or early spring. However, do not remove more than 1/3 of the entire plant at one time.

Snowberry bushes should be planted in spring or in early to mid fall. Choose a cool, overcast day to plant, and use proper planting techniques:

Snowberryshrubs

Have planted in front of house in attempt to have native shrubs and plants. They seem to get very spindly although look healthy and are growing. I cut them back and thinned early spring. Is this correct maintenance so they do not take over garden? Thank you.

Snowberry Bush – Pollination/Fruit-Bearing

do i need two snowberry bushes in my garden in order for them to pollinate each other and bear fruit, or can one bush do it all on its own? thank you.

ANSWERS

Since the Snowberry attracts a just about every pollinator out there (bees, hummingbirds and butterflies), there's a good chance that the flowers on a single bush will develop into fruit. If you want a 100% certainty of your shrubs bearing fruit, go ahead and get two, but space them carefully so that they get plenty of air circulation which will reduce the chance of disease.

Don't forget that all parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested, except to the birds who will eat them during the winter months.

Transplanting a Snowberry Bush

Hi, I\’m wanting to transplant my Japanese snowberry. Are the roots lateral spreading or do they go straight down? THANKS! KG

ANSWERS

Symphoricarpus has a fibrous, shallow root system. This makes it possible to divide the shrub after digging it up.
