Viburnum opulus compactum, better known as the guelder-rose or the Snowball, stems from the muskroot family, and are native to Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg. It has been part of our culture for a long time. The guelder-rose gets its nickname "snowball" from the white, spherical flower bunches appearing during the flowering period. The guelder-rose is a long-flowering and hardy plant that is found mostly alongside rivers. The plant is suitable for smaller gardens and during the flowering period, it provides its environment with a fresh, white accent with its flowery "snowballs".
It is advisable to check the guelder-rose for any dead or damaged branches after a severe winter. These must then be removed from the plant to avoid any growth barriers. The plant is low-maintenance, which, combined with the many other advantages of the plant, makes it all the more attractive.
