The "Summer Snowflake"

Summer SnowflakeThe “Summer Snowflake,” otherwise known as the Japanese Viburnum, will brighten up any garden, and at least three medium sized varieties of this flower can fit into any garden. This is a type of shrub which is very versatile – it can function as ground cover, add a bit of winter colour in the summer, and provide lovely scented blooms during the spring.

If you have a low-maintenance garden then this flower will suit you perfectly. If you have a lot of space in your garden then another variety of this flower the viburnum mariesii, can make a wonderful addition. It has flat flowers which grow from horizontal branches.

There are also some other varieties of viburnum that can spice up your summer garden. The “Dawn” viburnum has pink flowers with a lovely fragrance, growing 8 to 10 feet high. The Burkwood viburnum is a new English variety that grows into a shrub, that can also grow about 8 to 10 feet in height, and about the same width. The Korean spice viburnum is better suited for spring, it grows to 4 feet and 4 feet wide with flowers growing in clusters.
