Viburnum - 3 Gal.


Viburnum prunifolium

Bold and aggressive, this upright growing shrub may even take on the form of a small tree in the landscape. It displays big, deep green foliage that emerges in early spring and provides the backdrop for big 4-5" diameter flattened heads of fragrant, creamy white flowers in mid May. Bluish-black berries are a prized late summer through winter food source for birds and small mammals, a convenient plus since this Viburnum is a favorite nesting plant for these same critters. Plant this selection singly or as a large area hedge in most any location since prunifolium tolerates shade and a wide range of soils from moist to dry. Plant it in a place where you can enjoy the red to purple fall foliage show that closes the growing season with a bang!

Seasonal Note: Many deciduous plants have started to go dormant for the season. You may experience yellow, spotted and dropping leaves. This is completely normal at this point in the season. Reach out if you have any questions!
