Snowball Viburnum

The Snowball Viburnum, also known as the Guelder Rose or the Snowball Flower, produces tubular, star-shaped blooms that are less than an inch across in thick clusters. Native to Northern Asia, Europe and North Africa, the woody stems of the white flowers may reach up to 28 inches long.  This is a gorgeous and unique addition to any garden not only because of the flower’s beautiful color but also because of it’s unique shape.

The snowball is a deciduous shrub, and its flowers give off a distinct floral flagrance. The flowers have a decorative life of anywhere from five to ten days on average. In most climates, the snowball blooms from the month of April into May, although it may bloom in June in a cooler area.
