Snowball Viburnum Shrub (1 Gal) - Pure white florets bloom in perfect snowball-shaped globes. Deer resistant!
The Snowball Viburnum, arguably one of the most popular ornamental shrubs in human history, goes by many names which include 'Guelder-Rose', 'Eastern Snowball', 'Japanese Snowball', 'Roseum', 'Common Snowball', and many more. There are very few other flowering shrubs which have remained as widely cultivated and beloved throughout the centuries, and for good reasons! Firstly, the Snowball shrub puts on a floral display like no other with its perfectly rounded clusters of snow-white blossoms that appear as the same size and shape as a perfectly crafted snowball! Each floral snowball contains well over 100 blossoming florets that piece together to create the brilliant and symmetrical form for which the shrub was named. Another reason why the Snowball shrub has consistently been cultivated across centuries and the world is its sheer hardiness, pest-resistance, and drought-tolerance. Since it will be passed up by deer and insect pests alike, you're also planting a sense of security along with your Snowball Viburnum. Once it lives through its first summer after planting, this tough shrub is famous for withstanding both extreme drought and humidity so well-known to occur in the Southern United States. It would be a difficult task indeed to find another ornamental shrub possessing the same combination of beauty and resilience as the Snowball Viburnum! This shrub usually reaches a mature height between eight and ten feet and a mature spread between five and six feet. Due to its larger size for an ornamental shrub, the Snowball Viburnum is an excellent choice for planting a mixed-height shrub border, tall privacy screens, and for filling open landscapes with its unique, pure-white, snowball-shaped globes of flowers!
