Viburnum, whether evergreen or deciduous, is certainly a shrub for all seasons: there’s ‘Diana’ to usher in spring and ‘Summer Snowflake’ adorning graduation and June weddings. Blazing with autumn color, and all bearing lustrous fruit through winter to attract feathered visitors, these graceful shrubs exhibit an enduring cold hardiness.
They prefer rich, moist soil and bloom best in full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade.
The most exceptional attribute of this deciduous Viburnum is its horizontal growth habit, featuring flowers and fruit in parallel rows along the branches. Distinguished by a smaller stature, and foliage that’s not quite as large as Viburnum ‘Shasta’, ‘Summer Snowflake’ maintains a more rounded form and blooms well into summer with an extravagant offering of pure white lacecap flowers. It’s lovely in containers, grouped in a drift, or as a star specimen.
Blooms April – August.
Size: 6' 0" high x 6' 0" wide.
