Viburnum opulus Roseum is commonly known as Snowball trees. These viburnum shrubs bear round clusters of sweetly scented white flowers that resemble snowballs and give the plants their common name. The flowers of Viburnum opulus Roseum are sterile so these shrubs won’t produce berries. The green leaves of Viburnum turn to shades of russet and purple in autumn.This Viburnum has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit as an excellent garden plant.Grow Viburnum opulus Roseum in any moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil.

 

Planting

Dig a hole large and deep enough to take the plant’s root ball.

Gently tap the plant out of its pot without disturbing the soil around the roots.

Position the plant in the hole so the plant’s crown is level with the surface and sits at the same depth as it was in the pot; make sure the roots are in direct contact with the soil.

Backfill with the excavated soil and firm in gently.

Water to settle the soil around the roots.

 

Aftercare.

Watering: Water regularly in the first few weeks after planting but don’t overwater. The plants will send their roots down in search of moisture as they grow.

Feeding:  Give plants a boost if necessary with a handful of granular feed hoed into the soil in spring.

Pruning:  Prune established Viburnum shrubs by removing any old unproductive stems to the base after flowering to keep the shrubs manageable.
