Enjoy impressive flowerheads in early summer with Snowball Viburnum. This shrub grows 6-10 ft. tall with a similar spread and has a rounded, vase-shaped habit, making it ideal for flowering hedges, privacy screens and as a backdrop for perennial flower beds. Native to China, Snowball Viburnum produces 5-8 in. flowerheads that emerge lime green and turn a snowy white. The non-fragrant flowers attract butterflies. Dark green, ovate leaves are deciduous in northern climates and often semi-evergreen in warmer climates. An easy-to-grow shrub, Snowball Viburnum tolerates a range of soils, but performs best in moist, well-drained, acidic loamy soil. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Zones 6-9.
