Tiered and stacked limbs that are absolutely full of lacecap flowers every spring, the Shasta Doublefile Viburnum (Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum 'Shasta') is a gorgeous flowering shrub with a spring flush of bloom that sits atop each branch! Loaded with a double row of flat-topped clusters of snow white lacecap flowers. The two-inch clusters line each branch to completely cover the shrub from top to bottom!
Well-arranged, toothed, dark green leaves look almost quilted! Evenly spaced prominent veins angle off from the mid-rib to create a pleated look on the upper surface. Eye-catching red fruits develop from white flowers, and songbirds will enjoy them as a nutrient-rich resource food before winter. The show starts once the nights start getting cooler. In most areas, you'll enjoy a lovely fall color display of rich red and purple foliage.
Shasta is a fantastic deciduous shrub that's hardy in USDA growing zones 5 through 8. In late spring, the bees and butterflies flock to your shrub’s blooms, then in autumn, you'll enjoy the birds flocking to the last season harvest and the purple-burgundy foliage.
These wide-spreading, medium-sized shrubs are a delightful way to accent the start of a garden path, for instance. Use one by the corner of your garage to elevate the entry into your side yard. Use a single one as a bold focal point. Or, plant a row of them to become a wonderfully showy, flowering backdrop. If you have the space, add a long row along the front of your property or decorate a wide side yard. You'll make the world a prettier place!
Create a beautiful backdrop for your mixed garden borders. Or, place several behind your patio furniture as an outstanding privacy screen. Viburnum also makes a memorable hedge. Relax with the even tempo of their horizontal branches. Add a pretty row along the edge of a woodland garden to mark the boundary between domestication and wilderness with these informal, elegant shrubs that work great along the edge of the woods.
This variety of easy-care Viburnum will perform in either full sun or part shade. It needs at least four hours of direct sunlight a day. Well-drained soil is best. Elevate your shrubs in a raised bed if your soil retains water. Thereafter, provide a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Mulch over the root system to cut down on surface evaporation. If you live with deer in your area, apply repellent spray on the day of planting.
