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 on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Symphoricarpos albus 'Tilden Park'.
