For a beautiful long-flowering focal point, you can't go wrong with Summer Snowflake. This upright viburnum variety bears loads of white lacecap-type blooms starting in mid spring and continuing on throughout the summer season. Flowers will even appear in early fall under the right conditions. The red fruit matures to black and attracts birds and butterflies. Perfect for back borders or as a hedgerow. Prefers full sun or partial shade and well-drained soil. Viburnum plicatum 'Summer Snowflake'

Whether you're looking for shrubs for privacy or just pretty flowering shrubs, this Viburnum is just the ticket. Boasting three seasons of beauty, it makes the perfect addition to the landscape. A native shrub, they are vigorous, thrive in well-drained soil, and become drought-tolerant as they mature. Though the berries aren't good for humans, birds love them and will flock to your landscape to enjoy this tasty treat. Also a good shrub for partially shaded areas.
