Description

Clusters of snowball flowers smother the stems of Viburnum opulus in May and June, giving way to glossy, red berries in autumn. Viburnum flowers are loved by florists for their green-tinged blooms that mature to brilliant white. 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 for a long season of interest, even in challenging coastal areas. Height: 5m (10'). Spread: 4m (8').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Viburnum in a sunny or semi shaded position, in any moderately fertile, well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Viburnum shrubs at the same depth as they were planted in their pots. Backfill the planting hole and water well to settle the soil.
More Info
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Viburnum requires little pruning. After flowering cut back stems to a healthy bud and reduce any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant. Caution: Viburnum fruits are harmful if eaten.
