Chinese viburnum macrocephalum Old Fashioned Snowball Height Shipped 3-6"

Chinese Snowball: Viburnum macrocephalum, aka the Chinese snowball or old-fashioned snowball, is a deciduous, semi-evergreen shrub named for its large, showy puffy-looking white blossoms. It's a show-off plant that performs best in the warmer USDA growing zones.

This beauty needs either full or partial sun to bloom in the late spring, usually in May or June.

As the name suggests, this stunning species is a native of China's mainland. However, it enjoys wild popularity in the United States and is well-adapted to the mid-south, south, lower midwest, and southwestern regions.

Besides its inherently lovely appearance, this shrub is deer-resistant, disease-resistant, and drought-tolerant.

Where to Use the Chinese Snowball in Your Gardening

Viburnum macrocephalum generally stays around ten feet high. However, the tallest known specimen was almost 25 feet high. Regardless of how tall it wants to grow, it is resilient and heals well if you wish to prune it to a shorter size.

TN Nursery customers use this shrub in several gardening applications:

  • Pollinator garden
  • Asian theme garden
  • Cottage garden
  • In a partially sunny spot in your shade garden
  • As a stand-alone specimen or focal point.

The Old-Fashioned Snowball Creates an Amazing Floral Display

The Chinese snowball might put on one of the loveliest floral displays you would ever lay eyes on.

The shrub is multi-stemmed and forms a unique vase shape with a narrow bottom and an expansive canopy. When not blooming, the leaves are full, oval, abundant, and about four inches long. Their color is a rich green.

The flowers have an apple green center covered in a multitude of petite (under an inch) pristine white florets to form a ball shape--or better yet, a snowball.
