Quick Overview:

Chinese snowball viburnum is native to China. It is a rounded, vase-shaped shrub that typically matures to 15-20′ tall in the warmer climates of the deep South. Non-fragrant, sterile florets (each to 1 1/4″ wide) bloom in dense globose clusters (to 5-8″ wide) in May to early June. Florets emerge lime green, but quickly turn white. Pubescent, finely-toothed, ovate to elliptic, 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.
