Chinese Snowball Bush

Viburnum macrocephalum sterile


Chinese snowball viburnum is native to China. It is a rounded, vase-shaped shrub that typically matures to 6-10' tall in the St. Louis area, but may reach 15’ tall in the warmer climates of the deep South. Non-fragrant, sterile florets bloom in dense globose clusters (to 5-8" wide) in May to early June. Flowers emerge lime green, but quickly turn white. Dark green leaves (to 2-4” long) are deciduous in the northern parts of its growing range, but semi-evergreen in the southern parts of its growing range. Flowers are sterile, therefore no fruit is produced.
