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.  The information that is presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they know of cultural information that would aid others in growing  Symphoricarpos albus 'Tilden Park'.
