Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ Viburnum

Description: Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ is a deciduous shrub, great as a hedge or a specimen. Clusters of sterile flowers emerge lime green in late spring. The snowball blossoms later turn pure white and make excellent cut flowers for flower arrangements. The soft green foliage is similar in shape to Acers, turning shades of red and purple in the autumn. Received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Viburnum Growing Tips: Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ is tolerant of most soils but will do best in moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soils. Easy to grow and does well in full sun or partial shade.
