This handsome shrub is a reliable high-performer that will boost the good looks of your landscape.

You'll love it all year round, starting with the nectar-rich, creamy white blooms in early summer. Watch as they bring butterflies and beneficial pollinators to your garden. All That Glitters® has super glossy leaves that actually shimmer and shine when the sun hits them. It makes quite a striking presence in the landscape.

If you plant it with pollinator Arrowwood Viburnum, the flowers will be followed by an abundance of shiny blue fruit that songbirds adore while the dense, compact form offers shelter and nesting sites. Even in winter, an outstanding branching pattern catches and holds the snowfall. Cold hardy and versatile throughout USDA 4-9, tolerating a wide range of climates and conditions while staying a neat and tidy 4-5 mature feet tall and wide.

Planting and Application:

At Nature Hills, we love Viburnums. Take a look through our catalog, and consider starting a collection in your landscape. Plant with other Arrowwood dentatum varieties like its sister shrub the All That Glows® Viburnum for extra pollination to ensure higher production of those gorgeous berries for local songbirds! Create groves and groupings for Wildlife and bird-friendly habitats!

All That Glitters® should be used in the forefront of mixed garden borders. You'll love the lustrous leaves as they sparkle in the sunlight. This diminutive Viburnum variety is terrific for both commercial and residential landscapes. It is perfectly suited for low hedges and as foundation plantings. Try a single plant in a large container to draw the eye to your front door. Or, plant two on either side flanking a garden gate.

Because they can grow in either full sun or partial shade, you'll find many places to tuck them in your landscape. All That Glitters® grows to a perfect size to hide some of the most utilitarian features of modern living. Plant 4 feet apart on center to create a solid screen. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next. Try a row behind your patio furniture or along your driveway. Add as a hard-working backdrop to formalize the look of freeform Butterfly Gardens.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Although All That Glitters® is very adaptable, they do need to be planted in well-drained soils. It performs best in full sun, but handles semi-shade like a champ, as long as it receives 4 hours of direct sunlight a day. Carefully water your new shrub to get it established in your yard during its first season. Ongoing, give your shrubs a medium amount of water on a regular basis.

Don't shear them, or you'll lose the flowers and fruit for next year. Instead, prune any crossing, diseased or dead branches back as needed after the flowers are passed. Wait to Prune after flowering, as the shrub blooms on old wood. You can also skip tip pruning and renewal prune only if you wish to have fruit for birds. Renewal pruning removes the largest, thickest stems from the ground every few years. This will rejuvenate your shrub. Leave the young stems in place, which will flower nicely for you next spring.
