Guelder Rose (Hedging)

Viburnum opulus

Hardy Shrub

Clusters of snowball flowers smother the stems of the Guelder Rose shrub in May and June which then form glossy, red berries in autumn. This reliable, bushy deciduous shrub is cloaked in vibrant green, maple-like foliage throughout summer before autumn turns its leaves to shades of purple and red. An excellent choice for encouraging wildlife, the Snowball Bush makes a superb specimen shrub and is also ideal for hedging with a long season of interest, even in challenging coastal areas. Supplied as 60 - 90 cm bareroots (24 - 35") Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 4m (13'). Planting distance: 30 - 45cm (12 - 18"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

Ideal For:

April, May, June, July
