Viburnum x burkwoodii Anne Russell

Viburnum

Viburnum, whether evergreen or deciduous, is certainly a shrub for all seasons: there’s ‘Diana’ to usher in spring and ‘Summer Snowflake’ adorning graduation and June weddings. Blazing with autumn color, and all bearing lustrous fruit through winter to attract feathered visitors, these graceful shrubs exhibit an enduring cold hardiness.

They prefer rich, moist soil and bloom best in full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade.

A recipient of the RHS award of merit in 1957, dense mounding ‘Anne Russell’ boasts pink buds and copious, 3 in. waxy white flowers, which exude the most divine scent. The glossy dark green leaves turn a luscious crimson-purple in the fall. We favor it as an informal hedge or as a semideciduous specimen for the shrubby border and come spring, indulge in its fragrance each time we pass by.

Blooms April.

Size: 6' high x 8' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week - Not only do we love Liatris 'Kobold', but it's coveted by florists, butterflies & bees for itsl showy, vibrant hued flowers. ‘Kobold’ means “goblin”—and big-headed it is. This compact cultivar has a smaller stature than others of its species, and its erect stems rise solidly from the earth. Grassy foliage plays host to an outstanding bristle of rosy lilac blooms. A vibrant garden guest, contrast ‘Kobold’ against Phlomis fruticosa’s yellow blooms and harmonize with the pinkish panicles of Calamagrostis brachytricha.
