Viburnum Opulus Roseum, also known as Snowball Bush or Guelder Rose. This deciduous shrub is celebrated for its stunning appearance and graceful clusters of snowy white flowers. Let us explore the features, cultivation tips, and overall allure of Viburnum Opulus Roseum.

Viburnum Opulus Roseum is renowned for its breathtaking flower clusters that resemble fluffy snowballs. These showy inflorescences, up to 4-5 inches in diameter, create a captivating visual spectacle. Starting as vibrant lime-green buds, they gradually transform into pure white blossoms, adding a touch of elegance to any garden.

In addition to its enchanting flowers, this Viburnum species boasts attractive foliage. The leaves are prominently veined, vibrant green, and deeply lobed, lending a textured and ornamental appeal to the shrub. During fall, the foliage undergoes a vibrant color transformation, turning shades of reddish-purple and burgundy, adding another layer of visual interest to the landscape.

Following the flowering period, Viburnum Opulus Roseum produces abundant clusters of glossy, translucent red berries. These berries are not only visually striking but also serve as a valuable food source for various bird species. If you enjoy attracting wildlife to your garden, this shrub will be a delightful addition.

Viburnum Opulus Roseum thrives in well-drained soil and prefers a spot with partial shade to full sun exposure. It can adapt to a range of soil types but prefers moist, fertile soil. Regular watering, especially during dry spells, is crucial for establishing young plants. Once mature, Viburnum Opulus Roseum is relatively drought-tolerant. Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the shrub will help retain soil moisture and control weeds. Pruning is generally unnecessary but can be done after flowering to maintain shape.

This species is known for its hardiness, capable of withstanding colder climates, including frost. It is relatively disease-resistant and requires minimal care once established, making it an ideal choice for both experienced and novice gardeners.

Viburnum Opulus Roseum, with its show-stopping flower clusters, lush foliage, and vibrant berries, is a captivating addition to any garden. Its resilience, coupled with its aesthetic appeal, makes it a highly sought-after shrub for both ornamental and wildlife-friendly landscapes. Whether you're looking to enhance your garden's beauty or attract feathered visitors, Viburnum Opulus Roseum is a delightful choice that will undoubtedly charm you and your visitors alike.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
