When late spring arrives, you'll want to babysit your Nannyberry Viburnum, keeping your eyes peeled for its impending blooms. You will soon be rewarded with peppy and petite white to soft pink blooms that demonstrate that power in numbers is a great strategy for a striking spring display.
You're not the only one that will anticipate the Nannyberry Viburnum's blooms. Butterflies and bees also adore these sweet flowers that provide them with plenty of options of where to land.
The Nannyberry Viburnum features verdant, lively, glossy green foliage on arching branches. Remember to trim your Nannyberry about every three years. Prune after blooming for best results.
This upright shrub makes for a brilliant showing come fall. With deep veins and a slow color-change, you will wake up to a different sight every day as the Nannyberry Viburnum transitions into a burning bush with remarkable bi-colored and tri-color leaves in every shade of red, yellow, and orange that you can imagine. Many will even deepen to shades of violet.
You and your local birds and squirrels will also appreciate the Nannyberry Viburnum's blue-black berries. If you really want to please your local wildlife, plant a few Nannyberries nearby one another for best pollination and berry production.
The Nannyberry Viburnum is happy to adapt to your landscaping needs. Prune into a single-stem small tree or let it naturally spread its branches into a multi-stem shrub. Use yours as a specimen that will attract wildlife and season after season of interest. When planted along your property line, the Nannyberry Viburnum makes a fantastic informal hedge or screen.
The Nannyberry Viburnum won't stay in our nursery for long. They are in high-demand and ready to please season after season. Order several to experience the full effect.
