Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum ‘Summer Snowflake’

What I like about this Viburnum is that the flower petals are not rounded as much as most viburnum and they have more of a pointed tip.  The leaves turn a burgundy red/purple in fall.   The flowers mainly open in spring but they also continue to a lesser degree throughout the summer which is the reason behind the “summer” name.  Because of this long period of flowering you may see flowers, fruit, as well as fall colorful foliage on the plant all at the same time which I think is pretty cool.  This shrub will not grow too big with a mature range of 3 to 5 feet high and wide, although I did see a height of 8 feet in one source.
