An amazingly ‘SHOWY’ addition to any landscape; the Viburnum Macrocephalum, more commonly known as the ‘Chinese Snowball Bush’, is beautiful and easy-to-grow. The flowers emerge a striking lime-green in late spring and gradually turn to snowy-white in mid-May; they retain their green color for several weeks before turning to cream and then to white.
At full maturity, the ‘Flower-Balls’ resemble brilliant white pom-pom’s, reaching up to 8” wide. The ‘Chinese Snowball Bush’ will bloom for months in all of its’ growing zones and will bloom throughout the year in the warmer climates.
The Viburnum Macrocephalum is a sterile plant (producing no fruit) so all of its energy goes into blooming and . . . Does it ever!!! A relative of the honeysuckle, the 8” flowering clusters are made up of an abundance of delicate 1” flowers. The clusters resemble the blooms of the Hydrangea plant.
Best of all, this particular variety will provide a longer & more profuse BLOOMING SEASON than any other plant in its family. The foliage of the ‘Chinese Snowball’ is a brilliant dark green with 2”-4” leaves that have a ‘saw-toothed’ edge; they are stunning against the stark white of the flowering clusters.
The ‘Chinese Snowball Bush’ can be trimmed to any size or shape; it can be sculpted into shrubs, hedges, borders and trees. Cut it back after flowering and prepare for another round of blooming; this incredible plant blooms on both, old and new wood.
The Viburnum Macrocephalum is an extremely hardy variety that is resistant to bacterial leaf spot and powdery mildew, unlike its’ relatives. If you are looking for an incredible ‘point-of-interest’ for your landscape, you have found it in the ‘Chinese Snowball Bush’.
