Get more from your landscape with Red Balloon® viburnum!
In spring, large, lacy white flower clusters cover the plant, followed by green fruit which turns brilliant red in late summer. The thick, leathery foliage lends a distinguished, handsome look to the plant all season. This viburnum will develop some berries without another variety as a pollinator, but you'll get more fruit if planted around 'Mohican' or 'Alleghany.'
Top reasons to grow Red Balloon® viburnum:
- multi-season interest
- deer resistant
- shade tolerant
Red Balloon® viburnum is a fairly large plant that makes an excellent hedge or foundation planting.
PLEASE NOTE: For best fruiting, you'll need 'Mohican' or 'Alleghany'
Best in moist, well drained, slightly acidic soil. Trim to shape after flowering.
The fruits of Red Balloon® viburnum are not edible for humans, but they are relished by wildlife.
