Viburnum Red Balloon® Description

Red Balloon® provides interest in the garden for every season! In spring, large clusters of white flowers appear that attract pollinators and humans alike, with their lovely scent and candidacy as cut flowers. As flowers fade its handsome, matte green foliage has the chance to shine throughout the summer as a companion and backdrop to many border plants. But its most notable attraction is the arrival of showy clusters of bright red berries in late summer that often persist through winter. All in all, it is a low maintenance shrub that brings a lot to the landscape! Tip: Fruit are more plentiful if planted near V. ‘Mohican’ or V. ‘Alleghany’.

Special features: Deer resistant, Fall color, Attracts pollinators, Winter interest, Cut flowers
