Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum is a deciduous shrub, commonly called the Japanese Snowball Bush, because of the lacecap white flowers it bears from late spring to early summer, in a magnificently showy display. It is well known for its spreading, tiered branches of heart-shaped green foliage, which turns to shades of red and purple in the autumn. This large shrub offers late season interest to borders, but also makes a lovely addition to cottage gardens and woodland areas, and as a stand-alone specimen. Height: 3m (10’). Spread: 2m (8’).

Height Up to 300cm (119in)
Spread Up to 400cm (157in)

Caution: Harmful if eaten. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position in any free draining soil. Dig in some well rotted manure or garden compost. Plant the shrub at the same depth as it was in its pot. Firm the soil around the rootball and water well.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young shrubs become established. Once established, Viburnum will require little attention. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain the shape of the plant and contain it within its allocated space. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in spring.
