Roseum Snowball Viburnum

General Information

Roseum Snowball Viburnum is a sterile variety of Roseum opulus.  It does NOT produce cranberry like fruits.  It has three lobed, maple like, dark green leaves, and produces “snowballs” of sterile flowers. These snowballs emerge apple green in spring and gradually turn pure white.  It is typically grown for its showy, snowball shaped clusters of flowers.  The foliage generally turns orange- red in the fall.  The Snowball Viburnum is considered to be an heirloom plant, and is one of the oldest known viburnum.  It was recorded in the 16th century as “Sambucus Rose”.  Common Name: European cranberry bush.  Great for a foundation planting, shrub border or screen. Use the blooms in cut flower arrangements.
