Snow Berry

Featured in Wildflowers of the World

Gaultheria hispida (Snow Berry)
An attractive shrub to 2 metres with dark green leaves, clearly visible fine veins and minute serrations giving it a bristly appearance. The flowers are white, prominent urn-shaped, clustered at the ends of the branches. The spectacular fruits, comprising a swollen calyx surrounding a dry capsule which gives it the common name of Snow Berry, are edible. It is generally found in the high rainfall areas of west and north-east Tasmania, and reaches up to sub-alpine areas, flowering in spring and early summer. Seeds germinate readily but growing is difficult, although there have been reports of growing snow berry in the mild parts of the U.K. It makes an attractive container plant, though not particularly long-lived.

Mt Field National Park, Tasmania, Australia.
