Sparkling Pink Champagne™ Viburnum
Cheers! Like so many glasses of bubbly offered in a toast to spring, Sparkling Pink Champagne™ Viburnum celebrates the sweet, mild days of the season with dozens of light pink flower clusters. It is truly a joy to behold. Part of our Added Definitions program, this useful plant brings not only spring blossoms to the landscape, but valuable structure with its upright, eventually broad-rounded habit. In its season, it is the star of the show. During the rest of the year, it fades quietly into the background, making an excellent addition to a mixed border, privacy screen, or island bed.

There are several plants commonly known as “Snowball Bush.” This species, the Japanese Snowball Bush (native to Japan and China), is one. Its flower clusters are about the size of tennis balls and are usually white, but occasionally pink forms are found. This pink variety was discovered by Jim Zampini at Lake County Nursery in Perry, Ohio. The Zampini family knows a thing or two about plant selections, having brought nearly 150 new plant introductions into the world! In making their selections, they always strive to produce naturally pest-resistant, low-maintenance plants with multiple-season appeal. Sparkling Pink Champagne™ Viburnum is no exception.
Don’t think that Sparkling Pink Champagne™ Viburnum is a one-trick pony. Its beauty extends beyond flowers. Its dark bronzy green, pleated leaves offer a wonderful texture throughout the year. In autumn, the foliage turns a rich burgundy-red color, and the plant will once again take center stage in your garden.
How to Grow
Sparkling Pink Champagne™ is a Viburnum for full sun or light shade in northern gardens; in the South, some shade during the hottest part of the day may be a necessity. This plant wants steady moisture (water once a week if no rain falls), but it won’t tolerate soggy soils. Amend the soil as needed to improve drainage. Mulch with shredded bark, wood chips, leaf mold, or pine straw to keep the root zone cool and moist, and feed with Bower & Branch Elements™ Fertilizer to encourage balanced root and top growth. Few pests or diseases trouble this low-maintenance beauty.
