‘Snow White’ was selected by the H. Kolster nursery in the Netherlands in 2013 from seed received from the United States as Symphoricarpos oreophilus (Hoffman 2012), but Hoffman remarks that it shows little influence of that plant and may be pure S. albus subsp. laevigatus. Among the Doorenbos Group of fruiting hybrid snowberries, he recommends this clone for its abundance of relatively small, pure white fruit, and its resistance to leaf-spot.
