Viburnum Plicatum – Snowball bush, is a deciduous shrub.

The flowers when they first start forming looks like snow sitting on the bush from a distance it looks a very attractive plant.

Little red berries appear on the shrub about March leaving another spectacular display in the garden.

We had many on our farm in East Taranaki they were easy to grow it is a shrub that grows on you cannot help but notice it all the year round.

It is a plant that is better to not prune it as it destroys its natural style, so plant it where it has room to expand

flowers in the spring
red berries in the summer
pretty leaves in autumn
