Viburnum are deciduous or evergreen shrubs with attractive clusters of small and often fragrant blooms that are held upon branching, lateral stems and palm like lobed foliage. Once the flowering period has finished these plants will often produce an abundance of red, blue or black berries. Viburnum are best suited to flower beds and borders within coastal, cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Viburnum grow to an approximate height and spread of 2-3m (6.5-10’).
Viburnum are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of loam within an acidic PH balance. Plant Viburnum during spring and dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. Gently place your shrub into the planting hole, backfill the soil and water thoroughly. Space companion plants 1.5-2m (5-6.5’) apart to ensure that your plants have plenty of room to expand and grow. Once your plants are settled in place, water thoroughly and deeply. You should position Viburnum in full sun where they will thrive best.
Viburnum should be watered thoroughly during dry periods ensuring the soil is kept moist throughout active growth. Apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture levels whilst providing additional nutrients. You may wish to apply a slow release fertiliser, although this is not vital. Pruning is not essential although you may wish to trim your shrub down to improve the overall shape and size, removing dead, diseased or broken branches along the way.
