Description

I'd never before noticed that common snowberry can have this leaf form. This appears to be a very vigorous sucker growing from a mature root mass. Notice the typical snowberry leaves in the photo frame. The sucker vigor gets the new leaves quickly up into the sunlight, and the leaf form appears to be an adaptation to increase solar exposure and kick start the plants survival.
