From Oregon Flora, Gardening with Natives:
Snowberry is a fast-growing shrub which can be grown in most conditions found in the PNW, doing particularly well in partial sun with moderately moist soil. This resilient shrub is highly recognizable for its showy white berries which remain on bare branches well into winter. The berries provide sustenance to birds in lean winter months but are toxic to humans. Snowberry is ideal for woodland gardens but its tolerance to seasonally wet soils and vigorous spread make it perfect for streambanks or edges of rain gardens.
