Chinese viburnum macrocephalum Old Fashioned Snowball Height Shipped 3-6"
Chinese Snowball: Viburnum macrocephalum, aka the Chinese snowball or old-fashioned snowball, is a deciduous, semi-evergreen shrub named for its large, showy puffy-looking white blossoms. It's a show-off plant that performs best in the warmer USDA growing zones.
This beauty needs either full or partial sun to bloom in the late spring, usually in May or June.
As the name suggests, this stunning species is a native of China's mainland. However, it enjoys wild popularity in the United States and is well-adapted to the mid-south, south, lower midwest, and southwestern regions.
Besides its inherently lovely appearance, this shrub is deer-resistant, disease-resistant, and drought-tolerant.
