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.
Some say her ambrosial fragrance can waft over 30 ft. away. We say you’ll want to plant this compact, medium-sized beauty as soon as possible. Tinged chocolate when young, the broadly ovate, serrated foliage matures to a dusty dark green with fuzzy gray-green undersides, and in fall broadcasts purple-red shades. Dome-shaped clusters of red buds herald the posh pink flowers which brighten to a satiny white, emitting the most irresistible Daphne-like perfume.
Mingling amid other broadleaf shrubs, positioned alone or employed as a hedge, the energetic deciduous ‘Diana’ should stay close to a well-traveled, moist sunny spot.
Blooms late March to mid-April.
Size: 5' 0" – 6' 0" high x 5' 0" wide.
