They look wonderful year-round, starting with the tender pink buds in spring. They'll add a lovely sense of anticipation for the new growing season.

They'll soon open to creamy-white, flat-topped flower cymes that are prominently held above the foliage. These nectar-rich blooms are composed of many dozens of tiny flowers.

There are both male and female plants. Use several to ensure pollination, if you want to see the stunning blue fruit in fall. They'll start off as intense pink, but quickly take on a lacquered turquoise tone.

Use these versatile plants where you want to define your space with a cool ribbon of color. They make incredible low hedges along your property line.

With their rugged nature, you'll enjoy a restful, beautiful blue-green color without working hard. You may never need to prune these superior petite shrubs.

Add David Viburnum to up your landscape. You'll get designer style with very little effort, no matter if it's for your commercial or residential property.

How to Use David Viburnum in the Landscape

This diminutive Viburnum variety is perfectly suited for low hedges, mass plantings and in foundation plantings.

Set the stage for curb appeal with two on either side flanking of your doorways or garden gates. As a mirrored pair, they'll more than double their impact.

Try a row of them in a special garden bed to define your landscape. No need for facer plants, as the growth remains full and lush all the way to the ground.

Plant two feet apart on center to create a solid screen. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.

Fill a larger area for big impact, without hassle. Simply add additional plants, staggered to the preceding row. Create a large checkerboard planting pattern spaced two feet apart on center.

Mulch new mass plantings with pine straw or pine bark. Keep newly installed plantings weeded until the shrubs grow together and touch.

Remove volunteer trees and pernicious weeds regularly. Then...just sit back and enjoy the easy-care formality of a low David Viburnum hedge.

#ProPlantTips for Care

David Viburnum needs to be planted in well-drained soils. Use these in shaded or semi-shaded areas in the warmest climates.

Carefully water your new shrub to get it established in your yard during its first season. After that, we recommend that you provide a regular schedule of supplemental water.

Prune lightly only to shape, if needed at all, right after flowering is finished. No need to cut much, or you'll risk the yearly display of beautiful berries.

If you live in an area with heavy deer pressure, you'll want to apply deer repellent on the day you plant. Reapply according to directions to protect your investment.

Create a masterpiece that requires only moments in maintenance. Add expertly grown David Viburnum shrubs today.
