Enchant your guests from late spring through fall with a gorgeous selection of a native shrub. Keep Summer Magic Blackhaw Viburnum (Viburnum prunifolium 'Summer Magic') as an attractive upright shrub or small tree.

Keep one as a specimen to enjoy the full ornamental display. There are plenty of lovely features to enjoy all season long.

Springtime flowers are powerful magnets for butterflies and beneficial pollinators of all stripes. You'll do a great deed for local ecology with this showy choice.

Striking Summer Magic Blackhaw Viburnum was selected for its attractive new growth of red leaves. The bold red leaves gradually turn pink, then start to green up for summer.

It develops into a dense screen that shelters songbirds, while extending privacy for your family and friends. Place them near your seating area for welcome shade and screen.

This upright, rounded Blackhaw is more compact than the species, because it doesn't exhibit the horizontal fish-bone branching of the species. It fits well in courtyards and can be grown in oversized garden containers for many years.

Add a Forest Rouge Blackhaw Viburnum with Summer Magic to cross-pollinate the special flowers. Songbirds will visit to hunt for the nutritious blue-black berries in fall.

Once the temperatures drop late in the season, you'll be treated to a spectacular display of red and yellow. Add their rustic charm to flower arrangements for your harvest table.

Viburnum shrubs are sought after in professional landscape design. They are both sophisticated and sturdy...and let's not forget hardy and resistant to serious pests.

Don't delay...this outstanding modern cultivar will sell out quickly. Order vivid Summer Magic Blackhaw Viburnum today!

How to Use Summer Magic Blackhaw Viburnum in the Landscape

Plant them five feet apart for a solid, informal hedge. Grace your property line with a long row of these easy-care shrubs without the chore of shearing.

For a garden feature, why not establish a collection of Viburnum? These handsome shrubs certainly deserve your attention.

Summer Magic Blackhaw Viburnum is the perfect height to use for a privacy screen. Plant a grouping in a loose zig-zag on the west side of your patio for a delightful shaded, privacy space.

People have kept these as "right-sized" patio trees. Simply select a main trunk or keep several, then remove the other stems and limb up the lower branches.

Hide an undesirable view with a staggered triple row of these hard-working plants. Run Blackhaw species in the back, then plant Forest Rouge and Summer Magic in naturalized drifts on the sunny side.

Stabilize an embankment with this treatment, as well. Weave in Willows, Chickasaw Plum and Sumac for an incredible homage to North American native shrubs.

Anchor your foundation planting with a specimen. Or...add several in an undulating planting to decorate the rough edge of woodland.

Commercial property owners can add a valuable selling feature by establishing a mass planting. Run walking paths through the plantings, and include a water feature and seating areas to entice tenants and foot traffic.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Give it full sun to partial shade, where it will receive at least four hours of sunlight a day. The more sun, the brighter the fall color will be.

Well-drained soils are best. But this rugged selection is adaptable to poor soils, compacted soils, occasionally moist soils, dry soils, moderate heat, drought and pollution.

Include Nature Hills Root Booster for life-long support of your new plant...following directions on the label. Symbiotic ingredients such as mycorrhizal fungus work with the tiny feeder roots to help them access micronutrients.

Supply moderate water on a consistent basis for best results. Mulch over the root system, then pull it back away from touching the trunk.

If needed, prune to shape after flowering. Make strategic cuts, with the goal to keep a balanced canopy and open the interior to sunlight and air circulation. Study our Garden Blog for more information on Pruning 101.
