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.

This evergreen Viburnum was the last, and possibly the finest, of Dr. Egolf’s introductions. Dark red buds open as creamy white to pink flowers amidst the most lustrous of all Viburnum foliage. Later, persistent glossy red fruit brightens the fine textured, deep green leaves, which are pale olive-green underneath and tinged with deep maroon in winter.

We are fond of this compact, colorful, low spreading shrub in containers, as a dense informal hedge, or in mass plantings.

Blooms late April.

Size: 4-1/2' high x 7' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Our favorite plant this week: What's not to love about this adorable Primula? Steeped in charm and easily grown, this hard-to-find old-fashioned Primrose promises to please with nearly evergreen foliage and a blooming season, extending from spring to fall. A plentiful showing of rose-like buds and splendid lilac-pink double flowers adorn broad textured spring green foliage that forms a generous long-lived clump. Bright shade, well-drained soil and above average moisture will ensure its success.
