Common Snowball Bush, Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’, is an ornamental shrub that has been a garden favorite for centuries because of the “balls of snow” it produces in late spring.

One would make an eye-catching accent plant for your front yard, or plant several along your house or shed for a short, ornamental hedge.

There is nothing “common” about the Common Snowball Bush, and there are few plants more fun to have in your landscape!  Kids and adults alike love this rounded plant with its prolific supply of flowers.

The giant, spherical clusters of white and green-tinted blossoms will appear in masses in spring.  Some of the pristine blooms will even take on a pink cast for additional color.

In the fall, the leaves turn a wonderful burgundy, reddish-purple.  About the same time, the bright red, attractive berries ripen, and will persist on your plant throughout the winter.

Birds are very fond of the berries, and will likely be found snacking from your bush throughout the cold, winter months.

Common Snowball Bush is a deciduous, thicket-forming, Old World shrub.  It will grow to about 12 feet tall with an equal spread.  It’s very hardy, and once established, will thrive with minimal care.

A fun plant that provides outstanding blooms with minimal care, the Common Snowball Bush is a must-have plant for your yard today.
