Sophisticated landscape design relies on a backbone of attractive, high performance plants that offer ornamental features in many seasons. These are the trustworthy, solid choices that easily create a marvelous outdoor space for many, many years.

One such shrub is the well-appointed Emerald Triumph Viburnum (Viburnum x 'Emerald Triumph'). Compact growing and well branched, this deciduous shrub offers creamy-white, flat-topped flowers in spring, showy fruit, attractive foliage and great fall color.

They make exceptionally easy-care hedges; but can also be used as a single specimen. Emerald Triumph easily fit in courtyards, but are extremely versatile on large acreage properties, too.

You could even keep them in stylish extra-large containers for many years!

Their upright, rounded form reads as a naturally formal accent. Leathery, dark-green foliage remains handsome all season-long, and features a cool-toned, blue-green overcast.

Be enchanted by their sweet clusters of creamy-white blooms in springtime. These textured, slightly rounded blooms are nectar-rich and support many local butterflies and pollinators.

You'll be proud of this choice. Our expert growers are so pleased to help you support these intricate, yet critical, ecosystems in your local area.

Rest and enjoy the outstanding foliage all season. Count on these pretty workhorses to provide screening and even shade for your family and friends.

Watch as bright red berries develop from the blooms in late summer. As the nights start cooling down, they'll mature to black in fall in a lovely show.

The foliage, too, deepens for an exquisite mix of fiery fall color. Each shrub becomes a unique work of living art, with leaves in shades from golden-yellow to fire-engine red.

Even after the leaves drop, you'll be treated with a good-looking architecture and the dangling black berry clusters. After a few freezes, the songbirds will be happy to clean them for a vital food resource.

This cold-hardy, well-shaped shrub is an improved modern cross between Viburnum burejaeticum and Viburnum rhytidophylloides 'Alleghany'. These multi-stemmed plants were selected for their showy features, superior shape and excellent disease resistance.

As well, the desirable Emerald Triumph is a true winner among Viburnum because it's so easy to grow. No wonder they are a favorite of our professional garden designers.

How to Use Emerald Triumph Viburnum in the Landscape

No matter if you are starting with a blank slate, or working to revamp the look of mature landscaping, Emerald Triumph Viburnum can be a wonderful "ace in the hole". These colorful, tidy shrubs look terrific all year-long.

Boost your privacy with a long row used as a hedge. You'll never need to shear them, but you'll gain a pert, formal look all the same for very little effort.

For quick results, plant them four feet apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center the next. Each individual will grow together and touch.

Use a single plant at the corner of your home. Allow it to anchor your foundation planting, or decorate the side of your garage.

Even small space gardens can make the most of a single Emerald Triumph by using both sides of the shrub to define distinct garden rooms. Place an outdoor entertainment area on one side, and create a private reading nook on the other.

Jazz up the look of any existing planting, as well. Repeat across the back of a perennial border, or to formalize a Butterfly Garden.

Add color to shelterbelts, or mature evergreen trees. We recommend you create a mulched bed on the sunny side of your existing trees.

Create a natural-looking garden feature by planting in a loose grouping of three, five or seven shrubs in a drift. Vary the spacing between plants.

Start with a single plant on either end, and double up in the middle. They'll partner beautifully with our other Viburnum varieties, along with Red Twigged Dogwood and Ornamental Grasses.

These tough shrubs can even help you reduce your snow removal chores in winter. Add them in a hedge placed perpendicular to prevailing winds as effective snow fencing near your driveway.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Emerald Triumph Viburnum is an excellent choice for landscapes in shaded and partial sun areas. Give it at least four hours of direct sunlight a day.

An extremely durable shrub, it tolerates clay soils better than most Viburnum. It prefers moist loams, but tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils.

Provide a consistent schedule of medium moisture. We recommend mulch over the root system, but pull it back away from directly touching the stems.

Always plan for the full height and spread of these lush ornamental shrubs. That way, you'll enjoy the full display in every season.

Prune lightly only to shape right after flowering is finished. This shrub blooms on last year's wood, so don't delay. Waiting too long will cut off the buds of next year's blooms.
