Snakebarks are in a class of their own and this is the only one native to North America. Charming, isn't it?
The snakebark is a gardener's plant. Don't try to grow it in compacted or clay soil. Give it a moist, well-drained place to put it's feet into and a bit of afternoon shade to help keep the leaves from scorching and you will find yourself with an attractive and unusual conversation piece.
The bark is almost white during the growing season and green in the winter. Fall color is a good yellow.
