Illinois' Best


White 'snowballs' in May!

This viburnum selection, which resulted from a cross among Koreanspice viburnum, service viburnum and the fragrant snowball viburnum, has a nice compact habit--growing slowly to 4' to 5' tall with a rounded shape. The showy flower heads, 3" to 4" in diameter, are comprised of hundreds of tiny white flowers, followed by the fruits, which first ripen to red, then turn to black in early fall.
