Viburnum Plicatum Mariesii
Viburnum Plicatum Mariesii Hedging
Viburnum plicatum Mariesii sometimes called the Japanese Snowball bush is a medium sized spreading deciduous shrub with a distinctive, layered branch structure producing tiers of white blossom in May. Depending on position, soil and weather these are sometimes followed by red fruit that ripen through the summer to a shiny black. Ultimate size can be as much as 4 metres tall and wide, but it is easy to keep to about half that size in smaller gardens.
