'Red Balloon' is yet another excellent Viburnum for the garden, being able to hold its own as a specimen plant, or playing well alongside others in mixed borders or as hedging. Attractive semi-evergreen wrinkled foliage is only the first benefit in its arsenal. In mid to late spring it blooms, with densely packed heads of white florets, sure to attract bees and butterflies. These mature into bold round clusters of bright red berries, giving the plant its name. The fruit continues to ripen into glossy black berries, loved by birds.
