Also known as Wayfaringtree Viburnum, the Viburnum Lantana (Viburnum lantana), is a vigorous, handsome, urban-tolerant large shrub with grayish dark-green leaves that are leathery in texture! Plus profuse, creamy-white, flat-topped clusters of blossoms call butterflies, hummingbirds and bees in droves! Featuring excellent red, burgundy, purple and mahogany fall color, you'll enjoy how the foliage remains on the plant well into the fall season!
Thriving in woodland and woodland edges, Lantana can be a multi-stemmed tree growing tall or allowed to remain shrubby in form. With stout branches, its shape is ornamental, rounded, multi-branching, plus both upright and spreading. Great for erosion control and holding back rain runoff, these shrubs spread politely to form thickets and colonies!
It produces orange-red berries in August that turn a bluish-black in fall. The fruit causes mild upsets when eaten unripe or in large quantities, but birds and wildlife love them! Very cold-hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4-7, you'll appreciate all the qualities this large-scale, hardy native shrub provides! Deer resistant and highly adaptable to a great many conditions and moisture levels, this is a shrub that can almost grow anywhere!
Lantana matures upwards of 15 feet in mature height, with an equal spread! But can be pruned to any size! You can even 'limb up' these shrubs to create tree-form shrubs for anchoring garden beds and highlighting a berm in your front lawn! Creating a gorgeous specimen, focal point and foundation planting that has eye-catching curb appeal! You can also try a staggered zig-zag to create a mass planting on a slope or large bare patch. Allowing them to colonize slopes and hard-to-mow areas for erosion control!
Be the envy of your neighborhood with a row separating your property from the road or use as living walls and living fences for Outdoor Garden Rooms that add tranquil privacy! Fringe a ring of these around your seating areas, fire-pits, pergolas or garden swing to create an outdoor space you can't wait to get lost in! Thick privacy and relaxing textures whisk the rest of the world away. Fantastic shelterbelt and windbreak shrubs, the lush privacy from the dense branching even provides screening in winter! Backdrop your beds and borders or anchor your other garden landscaping!
Keep as a dense shrub for privacy and screening, as well as windbreaks and for wildlife to thrive in! Viburnum forms dense colonies with basal suckering that can be encouraged or easily pruned away once a year! Group in 3's or 5's for creating wildlife and bird-friendly habitat and shelterbelts, when combined with the delightful fruit, you'll have every songbird stopping by for a fall feast!
An easily grown Viburnum variety, Lantana prefers well-drained soil in full sun. They can grow in heavy clay soil, but grows best in alkaline soils. Tolerant of both full sun and part shade, these hardy plants appreciate some afternoon shade in the hotter growing zones during summer. Once established, Lantana Viburnum handles dry soils and is drought tolerant, pest and disease-free and rarely damaged by deer.
Mainly grown as an ornamental tree or shrub for its flowers and berries, so be sure to only prune right after the flowers have just finished so you don't remove next year's blooms! Any pruning however will remove your songbird's fall feast. Renewal prune every 3-4 years by removing the oldest fattest stems to the ground and encouraging new growth.
