Summer Snowflake Viburnum
Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum 

Summer Snowflake Viburnum is one of a very few ornamental shrubs that blooms all season long in our gardens, producing a flush of pretty, white flower clusters every month from April through October! Attractive bright red berries in late summer are followed by wine-red fall foliage. With these attributes you'd think we were talking about a native dogwood tree, and many who visit our gardens and see it in bloom think its a dogwood, until they get closer and see the beautiful florets.

Summer Snowflake Viburnum is very easy to grow. It will grow in full sun or partial shade. In our gardens here in central Georgia, we've found it performs better with a little shade or filtered sun during the hottest part of summer afternoons. That being said, in northern zones it should do fine in all day sun, or partial shade. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil. USDA Zones: 5a-8b  Find Your Zone >
