Spring Bouquet Laurustinus Viburnum (Viburnum tinus 'Compactum') is true to its name, providing your garden with a lovely living bouquet of blushing white flowers in the spring. They are a perfect complement to other spring-blooming flowers and shrubs.
The beauty of Spring Bouquet Viburnum is that it is an evergreen, so even after the flowers fade it still provides great structure and form in your garden all year. Pollinators adore these blossoms while they last, and you'll enjoy these tough and adaptable shrubs for their versatility and resilience! If you don’t prune after flowering, your neighborhood birds will be able to find a snack as the blackish-blue berries ripen on reddish stems for a unique color combination in the late summer to autumn months.
The flowers are lightly fragrant and you can cut the stems - whether flowering or not - as nice filler in your own homemade bouquets. Heat and humidity tolerant in USDA zones 7-11, these are low maintenance and easy-to-grow flowering shrubs! Plus their deer resistant, mostly pest free and have no diseases really to speak of!
This pretty, low-grower is dense and compact which makes it a favorite choice for small foundation plantings, hedges, and screening. Try it as a border in your perennial beds. It makes a great mixed planting in places like the corner of the drive where you want a nice planting, but need to be able to see over it as you leave for the day, and it welcomes you home!
Viburnum is an easy plant to mix with other shrubs. It blends in and adds without overpowering the surrounding shrubs in both leaf and flower. It makes a nice backdrop to Tulips, Daffodils and other spring bulbs. It looks great in all kinds of garden styles, too. It can look formal in a contemporary setting or wild in a rustic setting. It is especially pretty in the mixed borders of a cottage garden.
Highly adaptable and heat tolerant Viburnum do best in partial shade. Growing great in any type of well-drained soil. Low moisture needs once established, Spring Bouquet just needs enough water during its first year and well established into your soil. Mulch well to help hold in more moisture and to insulate the roots from the heat and occasional chill.
Wait to prune until after those amazing flowers are finished in spring. It's rare to need to tip prune, but you can shorten up the ends of branches right after flowering if you'd like. You can also skip tip pruning and renewal prune only if you wish to have fruit for birds. Renewal pruning removes the largest, thickest stems from the ground every few years. This will rejuvenate your shrub. Leave the young stems in place, which will flower nicely for you next spring.
