Viburnum - Smooth Witherod 'Winterthur' - 3 Gal.


Viburnum nudum 'Winterthur'

One of the best Viburnums available, this plant is known by few people but cherished by birds everywhere. One look at its dense, rounded form tells you that it is a great plant to provide cover and nesting area to a considerable group of our favorite birds. What you might not know is that birds are enthralled by the dark blue to black berries produced in the late summer as a result of big, fragrant, white colored April-May flower heads. Even better, 'Winterthur' tolerates partial shade well while growing famously in a wide range of soils from dry to moist. 'Winterthur' is perfect alone or in groups to create a bird friendly, American Beauties hedge and it will take your breath away in the fall with a foliage show of crimson-purple color that must be seen to be appreciated.
