Spring’s Best Flowering Shrub! 

If hydrangeas are the queens of summer flowering shrubs, then Chinese Snowball Viburnum (Viburnum macrocephalum 'Sterile', sometimes mistaken as Viburnum macrocephalum ‘Chinese’) has spring all wrapped up! This is the shrub for the savvy spring gardener. Large and in charge, you only need one of these beauties to make a statement. (But why not make a grand statement? Order more than one!)

Chinese Snowball is covered in hydrangea-like blooms the size of softballs that start out lime green and then open to glistening white. From April through May you will have armloads of blooms to enjoy in the garden or in the vase. Because this is a sterile Chinese Snowball viburnum, you won’t have the fruit that viburnums usually produce. Chinese Snowball isn’t fragrant like many viburnums either, which is a good thing for sensitive noses.

Even though the flowers are the real show, once they are gone the dense, rounded shrub is a bushy background filler that will make your summer flowering plants really pop.

Don’t underestimate the value of Chinese Snowball in your cutting garden either. In that hazy time between the flush of tulips and daffodils and the onset of summer color, Chinese Snowball will give you grand cuts for big vases. On a related note, Chinese Snowball Viburnum pruning is easy – once a year as soon as the flowering is done, give it a quick trim to remove the dead wood and shape it up.

Especially great in southern gardens, this is really an easy care and very rewarding shrub. We are happy to offer the Chinese Snowball Viburnum for sale. Buy yours today!
