Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' is my absolute favourite foliage plant for late spring, early summer picking. From early May, this is covered in bright acid-green fluffy footballs and elegant indented leaves. As the flowers mature, they move through creamy-green into pure white.

Sear the stem end in boiling water for 45 seconds and it will last for 2 weeks in a vase. It also forms the best backdrop for tulips and wallflowers in the garden.
