THE LANGUAGE OF GUELDER ROSE
How these pom-pom like flowers came to receive their name
Guelder Rose, also known as Viburnum opulus is a hardy shrub, native to Europe, Northern Africa and Central Asia. It can be found growing in woodlands all year round.
In the spring, it flowers pom-pom like tops followed by bunches of small red fruits in the autumn.
Historically the bark from guelder rose trees has been used as a herbal supplement to treat pain from muscle cramps.
Guelder Rose is a perfect addition to bouquets due to their large flower heads, adding a beautiful texture amongst other flowers.
