Viburnum × carlcephalum, common name fragrant snowball, is a hybrid flowering plant in the family Adoxaceae (formerly Caprifoliaceae), of garden origin. It is a cross between V. carlesii and V. macrocephalum.

Growing to 3 m (10 ft) tall and broad, it is a substantial deciduous shrub with heart-shaped leaves often turning red in autumn. Rounded flower-heads composed of many fragrant, tubular white flowers are borne in early summer.[1] Flowering is later than many other deciduous viburnums.[2] The flowers are followed in autumn by insignificant red-black fruits.

This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[3][4]
