Snowman is unpretentious
This low, graceful shrub with plentiful, large white fruits that completely cover the entire bush is used to decorate personal plots. Actually, due to the white color of the fruit, the shrub owes its name to snow-berry. But there are varieties of this shrub, the fruits of which are red, because of the low winter hardiness, he did not receive such a spread in our country as in Western Europe. In our country, the white berry bush is the most widespread - a bush with round, large fruits (up to 1.5 cm) of white color. And this variety is more winter-hardy.
The snow-white berry grows up to 1.7 meters high, with light green, leaf-shaped leaves. The leaves bloom early, the snowman blooms for quite some time from July to September. But the decorative value of the bush is not in the flowers, but in the numerous white fruits in clusters at the ends of the shoots, under the weight of which the branches, curving beautifully, give grace to the whole bush.
