Who am I?

Postby Jude Levett » Aug 18, 2012 5:55 pm

I am a smallish bush with tiny pale pink flowers and white berries. Both my gardener and Jude do not know who I am because Jude lost the tag from me when she bought me a few years ago.

I am sure I have the word berry in my name - can you help?

That looks like the White Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus) Also called "Soapberry"
Taken from Wiki : " S. albus var. laevigatus, native to the Pacific coast. It is a larger shrub, up to 2 m (6.6 ft) tall, and with slightly larger fruit. It is treated as a distinct species, Symphoricarpos rivularis, by some botanists."

It grows wild in a lot of areas here on the coast . I have a bush of it on my fence line.
