Symphoricarpos albus 'Tilden Park' (Snowberry) - An upright deciduous shrub to 5 feet tall with bright blue-green 1 inch long leaves. In the summer appear tight clusters of small bell-shaped pink flowers followed by half-inch, pearly white berries that remain well into winter. This selected form of the common California streamside native, Symphoricarpus albus, was originally selected by Roy Taylor at the Tilden Park Botanic Garden in the foothills of the East Bay (San Francisco Bay). It was selected for its bushy habit, clean foliage and reliable fruit set of large berries. Tolerates full sun with regular irrigation but better planted in light shade with occasional irrigation. Tolerant of a wide range of soils. Cold hardy to less than 10 F.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Symphoricarpos 'Tilden Park'.
