Our growers deliver exquisite plant material to professional garden designers across the country. They tell us that their demanding clients are asking for handsome, fragrant plants that are resources for local birds and butterflies.

With light pink buds that open to white flower clusters, Burkwood Viburnum (Viburnum x burkwoodii) delivers a marvelous springtime fragrance. It's sweetly floral with rich notes of amber and spice.

You will cherish these incredibly fragrant plants. So will everyone within range of their heady aroma!

That includes jewel-toned hummingbirds and showy butterflies. The plentiful, mounded clusters are a perfect early-season nectar resource for our critical beneficial pollinators.

Plant several to encourage the best flower power. And you'll want plenty on hand to take a few branches for cut flower arrangements.

Small new leaves lengthen as the days warm up. They are lavishly held to cover the well-branched, twiggy Burkwood.

Each dark green leaf features a lustrous sheen and prominent veins from the midrib. This lovely variety is right at home in high-profile areas, including modern foundations plantings.

Designers rely on these gorgeous "workhorses" to deliver beautiful results all season long. The leaves remain evergreen in warmer climates.

If you live in a cold-winter area, watch for a vivid fall color display as the nights start getting cooler to burnish the foliage. Bold purple and red hues rival any other shrub in its size group.

Small red berries dangle in the same clustered arrangement as the flowers from which they developed. The fruit doesn't linger long (birds love them!), so you may not get a chance to see them mature to glossy black.

Nature Hills is thrilled to offer these sophisticated, multi-season shrubs that work tirelessly to beautify your landscape. Order enough Burkwood Viburnum shrubs to complete your project.

Or...risk losing out on this year's crop. Those designers move fast to order these dazzling compact shrubs.

How to Use Burkwood Viburnum in the Landscape

Because they can grow in either full sun or partial shade, Burkwood Viburnum is a good choice to use throughout your landscape. Formal enough for the front yard, its fragrance and ornamental features are certainly welcome in backyard entertainment areas.

Tie the look of your space together with Burkwood in several areas. Even small space gardens can easily leverage this professional tip.

Make your neighbors happy and plant a long hedge that rarely needs trimming. Space them three and a half feet apart, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

Add additional rows in a staggered, zigzagging planting pattern. They'll grow together and create a bird-friendly mass planting.

Commercial property owners...take note. How much interest would glorious scented air in spring, polished shiny foliage and vibrant fall color generate for your tenants?

Plant a single shrub to anchor your foundation planting. Use two of them, flanking either side of your front door.

If you keep your bedroom windows open, use a short row underneath. You'll enjoy a blissful night's rest.

These durable Viburnums make a terrific plant to give as thoughtful housewarming gifts. They are especially nice near entrances and patios.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant Burkwood in a spot that receives at least four hours of sunlight a day. Well-drained soil is best, but it will adapt to many soil types that shed water quickly after a rain event.

Carefully water new shrubs during its first season. After it is established in your soil, you'll want to protect your investment with a medium amount of water on a regular basis.

Where these broad-leaved evergreens retain their leaves all year, give a long drink of water in fall. Good hydration helps protect the evergreen leaves through the wintertime.

Prune lightly to shape right after flowering is finished. Don't wait too long, as this shrub blooms on last year's wood.

Get out your measuring tape and plan for the mature height and spread of this shrub. You truly don't want to miss a single bloom.

So now we've let you in on one of those plants designers love to use. They thrill their clients with color, fragrance and durability.
