Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' (Large Plant)

Viburnum opulus 'Sterile', Snowball tree

Hardy Shrub

A popular, easy to grow shrub which thrives in the English climate. Viburnum opulus is a bushy, deciduous shrub with pretty leaves, shaped similarly to an Acer, and which turn shades of purple and red by the autumn.

The frothy, white flower heads have caused the shrub to become known as the 'Snowball Tree', and those blooms make excellent cut flowers for vases indoors too. The flower heads open during May and June with a green tinge, becoming pure white over a few weeks. Afterwards, the most vibrant red berries appear, providing autumn colour and giving an excellent food source for the birds. Height and spread: 4m (12').
