Product Description

Viburnum opulus cv "ROSEUM", commonly known as European cranberrybush 'Roseum' or snowball viburnum, is a deciduous shrub prized for its stunning, globe-like clusters of sterile flowers that resemble fluffy snowballs. This cultivar is a popular choice for gardens and landscapes due to its ornamental value. Here's a brief description and some cultivation tips for Viburnum opulus 'Roseum':

'Roseum' is a medium-sized shrub that typically reaches heights of 8 to 12 feet (2.4 to 3.6 meters) with a similar spread. Its attractive, maple-like leaves are dark green and deeply lobed, providing a lovely backdrop to its show-stopping feature. In late spring to early summer, this shrub produces large, round, and sterile flower clusters that start as bright green buds and gradually change to pure white, resembling snowballs. These flower clusters can measure 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) in diameter and create a striking visual display. As the season progresses, the flowers may turn light pink before fading. The cranberrybush also produces red, berry-like drupes in the fall, adding to its ornamental appeal. 'Roseum' is suitable for hedges, mixed borders, and as a stand-alone specimen plant.

Cultivation:

  1. Location: Plant 'Roseum' in a location with full sun to partial shade. It can tolerate some shade, but it blooms most prolifically in sunnier conditions.

  2. Soil: This shrub prefers well-draining soil with good moisture retention. While it can adapt to various soil types, adding organic matter can improve soil structure and fertility.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season and dry spells. Adequate watering promotes healthy growth and flowering.

  4. Pruning: Prune the shrub as needed to maintain its shape and remove dead or damaged branches. You can also prune after flowering to control its size and shape.

  5. Fertilization: Fertilize 'Roseum' in the early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to support healthy growth and flowering.

  6. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the shrub to conserve moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch away from the trunk to prevent moisture-related issues.

  7. Pest and Disease Control: Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' is generally resistant to most pests and diseases. However, monitor the shrub for signs of stress or issues and address them promptly.

  8. Propagation: You can propagate 'Roseum' from semi-hardwood cuttings taken in late summer or early autumn. Use a rooting hormone to encourage root development.

  9. Winter Protection: In colder regions, protect the shrub from harsh winter conditions by providing a layer of mulch around the base and wrapping it with burlap or a protective covering.

Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' is a captivating and ornamental shrub that can add elegance and visual interest to your garden or landscape. With proper care, it will thrive and enchant with its showy, snowball-like flowers and attractive foliage.
