Tree Form

The Viburnum opulus 'Roseum,' also known as Snowball or Gelderse Roos in Dutch, is naturally a large deciduous shrub that we offer in the form of a small tree.

 

Leaf Color and Leaf Shape

The leaves of Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' are green in spring and summer, changing to various shades of red to purple in the fall. The leaves are fairly coarse-toothed with 3 to 5 leaf points, resembling somewhat the shape of a maple leaf.

 

Fruits

Regarding fruits, the 'Roseum' cultivar does not produce berries after flowering.

 

Location

The Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' prefers a sunny or semi-shady location. The tree thrives in a slightly moist soil that is well-draining and rich in nutrients.

 

How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
