    Symphoricarpos albus? Flowers are a pale pink and turn to white balls which the birds also love in the winter. I have it in a mixed hedge & I too leave it to flower for the bees.

  • Symphoricarpos albums or Snowberry is the Tree I have worked out it is so Thank you too everyone who assisted in identifying it! (with my Unhelpful Description as a Photo Wouldn't upload from my Phone! ?)

    Urgh I loath snowberries, yes the bees love them, the birds round here ignore them, but they sucker and self seed something chronic, keep a very tight reign on it or it will be everywhere.

    I'm with you Skandi.

  • I'm with you too.

    My Snowberry however, which I presume started in the boundary hedge,  is all over the garden and away with itself!!!! image
