#ProPlantTips for Care:

Give Viburnum 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.

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. Any pruning however will remove your songbird's fall feast. Instead, Renewal prune every 3-4 years by removing the oldest fattest stems to the ground and encouraging new growth still enjoy the berries.
