Features

Eastern Snowball Viburnum features showy balls of white flowers at the ends of the branches from late spring to early summer. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The large serrated lobed leaves turn outstanding shades of purple and in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The smooth gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

Planting & Growing

Eastern Snowball Viburnum will grow to be about 12 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 10 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
