Viburnum plicatum or Japanese snowball is a deciduous ornamental shrub with bright red berries and pale pink to bright white flowers. The BEST-select varieties bloom densely compacted, which makes them extremely suitable for public garden borders or smaller gardens.
Viburnum thrives best in a sunny or partially shaded location. It is not very demanding but prefers a well-drained, humus-rich, mildly acidic to neutral soil. It is a hardy plant, and because of its compacted growth it hardly requires any pruning.
