Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ AKA the Snowball Tree, is a bushy, deciduous shrub with striking blooms and lobed, maple-like leaves that turn fiery shades of red and purple in the autumn.
Most noted for its voluminous clusters of flowers, this viburnum bursts into bloom from early May, becoming a mass of green-tinted white snowball flowers which become flushed with pink as they age.
Unlike the more common Guelder Rose, fruits are not produced as the flowers of the Snowball Tree are sterile, however the show of spring and autumn colour more than makes up for this - plus the flowers are just perfect for cutting and bringing into your home.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, robust and vigorous, and guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as an established plant in a 17cm pot, ready for immediate planting. Will reach approx. 4m x 4m and is perfect for a flowering hedge or as a specimen plant in borders. Flowers May - June
Plant your viburnum where it will receive the afternoon sun as this will warm the blooms and improve their scent.
