Viburnum Carlcephalum is a large, deciduous shrub, producing round trusses of small, sweetly fragrant pink-white blooms that open from pink buds in spring, maturing to small fruit in the autumn. This substantial viburnum has a bushy habit, with heart-shaped green leaves that turn a spectacular red in autumn.


Commonly known as ‘the fragrant snowball’ for its delicate spherical blooms, it is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence in the garden.
