Snow in July

Summer Snowflake Viburnum, Viburnum plicatum 'Summer Snowflake', is a compact, dense, upright, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub which typically matures 6' to 8' tall with a 8' to 10' spread.

In the spring, 'Summer Snowflake' will bloom with clusters of white flowers that follow along the horizontal stems, creating a double row of blooms on each side. This bloom pattern gives 'Summer Snowflake' its common name - doublefile viburnum. It may bloom from May through Sept

The non-fragrant, lovely white flowers are almost continuously from May through September. The flowers give way to bright red berries that are relished by the birds.  It has dark green oval leaves that can reach up to five inches long. The foliage turns a rusty red to bronze in the early fall.

Summer Snowflake is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist loams, but tolerates wide range of soils and has good drought tolerance.

Prune as needed immediately after flowering.  For best cross-pollination and resulting fruit display, plant shrubs in groups rather than as single specimens. These can be used as hedges, windbreaks, specimen plants, patio plants, and the back of the garden.

* Foliage Turns Rusty in Autumn
