List of files and visuals associated with this text.


Japanese snowball grows well in sun to partial shade and any moist soil. The plant transplants well, has a moderate growth rate and grows to a mature height and spread of 8 to 10 feet. The white flowers occur in ball-shaped clusters produced in late spring.

Cultivars include: 'grandiflorum'--more profuse flowering; 'mariesii'--outer flowers sterile, inner flowers fertile; 'roseum'--flowers open white, then turn pink, may be dependent on growing conditions; 'tomentosum'(Doublefile Viburnum)--interesting horizontal branching is enhanced when the plant bears white flowers in flat clusters; fruit is red, then black and often eaten by birds.
