Cardinal Candy® Viburnum
Cold-Hardy Viburnum with 4-Season Interest
Cardinal Candy Viburnum, Viburnum dilatatum 'Henneke', is a deciduous shrub with four-season interest. Use these as a foundation planting, or in a winter garden where their splash of color can provide some enjoyment through the dreary months of winter.
Your Cardinal Candy Viburnum has a lot to offer! A Proven Winners selection, this Viburnum variety is particularly prized by northern gardeners for its cold tolerance, but still maintains all the wonderful ornamental features Viburnum-lovers seek.
The show begins in spring when the 6-inch wide clusters of white flowers bloom, a showy yet elegant beginning to the new season. Dangling scarlet fruits soon follow. The brightly-colored drupes gather together in bunches amid your Viburnum’s branches, ripening in late summer/early fall, yet persisting throughout the winter months.
The effect of the fruit against the vibrant leaves, and later amid the bare branches, is outstanding…and your birds will enjoy the tasty treat. Even when not in flower or fruit, your Cardinal Candy is a lovely shrub.
The 5-inch, toothed leaves have a delightfully wrinkled appearance, and fill out your Viburnum for a lush, healthy presence in your landscape. In autumn, the foliage transitions to a decorative burgundy.
Cardinal Candy Viburnum will grow to 6 feet tall with a 4-foot spread. It has improved hardiness over other Viburnum varieties and presents an upright, rounded nature. Cardinal Candy has no significant disease or insect issues, and although birds and butterflies love it, other wildlife (such as deer), tend to leave it alone.
A cold-hardy shrub that offers ornamental interest for every season, Cardinal Candy Viburnum is a sensible choice for any home gardener.
