Root, root, root for the home team! 

In the US, you know spring is in full swing when that first pitch is thrown out on opening day and the baseball season officially begins. You also know that spring is in full swing when Opening Day Doublefile Viburnum (Viburnum plicatum 'PIIVIB-II' PPAF) throws out its first baseball-sized flower and the garden officially bursts into bloom!

Every April, Opening Day is covered with huge flower heads that look like sisters to hydrangea blooms. These are the same look and feel as the big, round flowers that you love on hydrangeas but viburnum loves the sun and handles drought far better. Hydrangeas will begin to wilt if there is a lack of water, but an established viburnum will keep going strong through the heat. The flowers start off tinged slightly green, but soon turn snow-white and bring a true feel of ‘coolness’ to your garden.

Most viburnums are huge, often reaching 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide or even bigger with age. Opening Day only grow to 5’ by 5’, so it will fit into just about any garden.

The dark green leaves have a beautiful texture and are pretty even when the flowers are gone. In the fall they turn the color of a rich glass of cabernet and dress your garden up for autumn.

This is a new take on a classic garden plant from China. It looks great in woodland or cottage gardens or along the backyard fence. This is destined to be a garden staple so don’t miss the first pitch and add Opening Day Doublefile Viburnum to your garden today!

* Easy care
* Great for hedges, screens and borders
* Cut flowers
* Bird habitat
* Showy flowers
* Fast grower
