A wide spreading, yet compact, dome shaped plant selected from a seedling at Winterthur Gardens, Delaware in 1991. V. plicatum f. tomentosum 'Mariesii' is on of the suspected parents. Habit is full and dense right to the ground, so its masses of white 4" lacecap flower clusters in May give it the appearance of an igloo. Sets good quantities of scarlet-red fruit. Reported by Dr. Eugene Coffman, Ridge Road Nursery, Bellevue IA to have survived -20°F but until proven to withstand those temperatures on a consistent basis, we will list it as Zone 5.
