Description Plant Care Q & A Description

Viburnum 'Kilimandjaro' is a highly prized and attractive choice due to its attractive 'wedding cake', tiered shape and the lace cap flowers that face upwards from the horizontal branches.  The pretty white flowers, open in May/June and are followed by red berries which subsequently turn black.  The green, ovate leaves have shades of red and purple in the autumn to add another season of interest.  Hardy, deciduous.  Height 2.5m, width 1.5m after 10 years.  Happy in full sun/part shade, in most fertile, free draining soils.

  • Position: full sun/part shade
  • Soil: fertile, free draining
  • Eventual Size: 2.5 metres
  • Habit: tiered, pyramidal
  • Foliage: deciduous, green then red
  • Common Names: 'Japanese Snowball'
Plant Care

Add good compost to the garden soil when planting, then mulch each year in the autumn/winter.  Prune unwanted upright shoots from the tiered branches.
