Snowball Bush #3

If you want to make a stylish impact but need to keep things easy care - take a really good look at Common Snowball Viburnum, (Viburnum opulus 'Roseum', syn. Viburnum opulus 'Sterile'). Frankly, it's hard not to look at this ornamental flowering shrub.

This variety has been a garden favorite for centuries. An incredible flower display of huge, rounded, sterile flower clusters are produced on the end of each branch in late spring.

The flowers really do resemble snowballs. Kids just love this shrub!

If you didn't know better, you might think you were looking at an Annabelle Hydrangea. But this Viburnum shrub grows much taller and wider. It's truly a show stopper every single year when they bloom. 

The blooms appear in masses in May or June, depending upon where it is grown. Some of the pristine blooms will even take on a pink cast as those flower clusters age.

Dark green, shiny maple-like leaves act as a perfect backdrop to the massive flower displays. In autumn, those green leaves turn purplish and red and are a welcome fall color.
