In Spring, Viburnum plicatum 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' produces delicate, lace-like white flowers with a soft pink blush. These are followed in summer by eye-catching, glossy red berries that are very popular with garden birds. A good all-round specimen shrub for bringing exciting colour to any garden.


Winner of the coveted 'Plant of the Year' award at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2015, V. ‘Kilimanjaro Sunrise’ is also known as the Japanese Snowball Bush for its beautifully pristine white blooms.
