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.

Viburnum carlesii (S-0071)

AVAILABLE LATE APRIL 2021

<i>Viburnum carlesii</i>

This much loved Japanese and Korean denizen has tantalized gardeners with its sweet vanilla-laden scent since 1906. First appearing in late autumn on naked light brown branches, the clustered red buds stir our interest as we eagerly await spring and the snowball-like 3 in. wide cymes of pink flowers, which mature to crisp white against broadly ovate dusty-green deciduous leaves. Aside from the fabulously fragrant blooms, the grand slow-growing Korean Spicebush offers plenty of reasons to invite it into your garden: red and black fruit (a beckoning sight for hungry birds), wine-red fall color, attractive smallish rounded frame plus a trouble-free low maintenance constitution.

Blooms March–April

Size: 4' 0" – 6' 0" high x 4' 0" – 6' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
