Spicy Flowers and Fragrance for Your Yard

Korean Spice Viburnum, Viburnum carlesii, is a deciduous shrub with ornamental flowers and fall berries.  Use some for a foundation planting, or place one at the back of your perennial bed to provide a dramatic background for smaller plantings.

Your Korean Spice Viburnum is a Proven Winners selection, and certainly a “winner” in every way.  In spring, petite pink buds unfurl their delicate petals to reveal pink-tinted blossoms that slowly transition to white. 

The white blooms cluster together, forming 3-inch snowballs that are sure to turn your head every time you pass by.  Their spicy scent will draw you closer, and be an irresistible call to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. 

Korean Spice’s 4-inch, dark green leaves provide a lush, verdant appearance in your yard, and add a dash of spicy, burgundy color once fall arrives.  Red berries (drupes), that form from the flowers become black for winter, a bit of extra interest in this exceptional, ornamental shrub. 

Korean Spice Viburnum will grow 4-6 feet tall with a similar spread.  It has an upright, open-branching nature.  Korean Spice has no significant disease or insect issues.  It’s a good source of food and cover for wildlife, but deer tend to pass it by.  Korean Spice adapts well to a wide variety of environmental climates.

Spicy flowers and fragrance on a beautiful, hardy shrub—Korean Spice Viburnum seems to have it all!
