Viburnum ‘Snowball Bush’ 8″ Pot
Viburnum opulus sterile
The Snowball bush is popular and easy to grow. This large shrub grows into an upright dense mound. The three-inch clusters of snowball flowers start out apple-green and morph to white, eventually fading to a rosy colour. You can cut the flowers to use in displays. An alternate name for this cultivar name is “Sterile,” which reflects the fact that this type of snowball bush produces no berries. The leaves are three-lobed and somewhat resemble the leaves of maple trees. Like maple, the leaves can turn reddish-orange in the fall.
