By fall, the flowers give way to ornamental red berries.
This plant has a compact form and gradually spreads out. Use this medium-sized shrub to define a space or create a hedge. The Summer Snowflake Viburnum is good for foundation or border planting. This deciduous plant grows as a perennial in zones 5 through 8.
Summer Snowflake Viburnum Care
Plant the Summer Snowflake Viburnum in full to partial sun. Water when the top couple of inches of soil are dry. The soil should be rich, moist, and well drained. Apply a balanced fertilizer early in the spring before new growth appears.
This beauty blooms on new wood, so wait until the flowers fade to prune. Shape the plant as needed during fall.
