The Viburnum category, or genus, contains over 150 species of viburnums. Nature Hills makes a determined effort to offer several species because the viburnum has proven to be a superb shrub family! Landscapes across the United States are dotted with these plants. Gardeners love the viburnum fruiting, the variety of sizes, but most of all the colorful flowers and foliage colors; some of the flowers and foliage are fragrant. Viburnums can be evergreen and deciduous, fruiting or fruitless, and provide a significant fall color. Besides that, they are easy to care for and maintain. They are adaptable to many zones and climates, and most viburnums are tough and very disease resistant. They may be pruned, shaped, placed in tough sites, and still perform admirably. The colorful berries provide winter interest and lure wildlife. They also are not a deer’s favorite food source.
Choose a particular viburnum if you want colorful flowers, such as the Arrowwood. If you are seeking more fall color, select Forest Rouge Blackhaw, Brandywine or the American Cranberry Bush. Viburnum is an excellent plant, and it will assure you a beautiful landscape. This outstanding shrub is available in smaller sizes, and a good choice for a limited space would be the new Blue Muffin Viburnum.
