Spice Baby™ Koreanspice Viburnum

Availability: Out of stock
A powerful scent from heavenly blossoms!

Take a stroll around your block this evening as the sun is setting. If you’re lucky you’ll smell a spicy sweet scent wafting on the evening breeze.

What is that wonderful smell? It’s not a rose, or a lilac or jasmine.

Can’t put your finger on it? Let us help you. It’s Spice Baby Koreanspice Viburnum (Viburnum carlesii 'SMVCB' SPICE BABY). This Proven Winner selection is a medium shrub – only about 3’-5’ tall – but it is covered in perfect snowball sized spheres of blush-pink blooms that are reminiscent of clusters of apple blossoms if they were hydrangea flowers. These are sized just right to go in any garden and are especially useful as foundation plantings. (To make your neighbors really jealous, use several as a fragrant, flowering springtime hedge.)

These beauties are deer resistant, should you live somewhere where that is a necessity. But even though deer dislike them, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators find Spice Baby completely irresistible! You will have a vibrant display of flying friends for weeks.

Winners are field tested for beauty, strength, and stamina so you can be sure that Spice Baby will perform exceptionally well in your sunny garden. If you have more than one you will even get berries in the fall to add to the show.

Don’t wait until next year to add these classic garden plants to your landscape. Order yours today!

* Fragrant blush-pink flowers
* Attracts pollinators, butterflies, and hummingbirds
* Deer resistant
* Good hedge
