Symphoriocarpus albus (Snowberry) is typically found along stream banks, in swampy thickets, moist clearings and open forests at sea level to middle elevations. It tolerates soil types but grows best in heavy clay soils. Snowberry grows well in sun or shade.
Seed treatment recommendations: Seeds are best sown in the fall after maturity. Dormancy of this species is caused by hard seed coat and immature embryo, which can be broken by stratification in sand and peat for 90 days at 77º, plus 180 days at 41ºF. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, place them into individual pots and grow them in the greenhouse for their first winter. Plant seedlings into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer.
