Viburnum

I think I can honestly say I have never met a Viburnum I didn't like - they come from a good family, always look neat and tidy, often smell good and don't crave constant attention. This genus of evergreen and deciduous shrubs are great background performers and should not be overlooked when planning a new garden or refurbishing an existing planting scheme.

Viburnums are tolerant of just about any soil but they are happiest in a rich humus that does not completely dry out in summer. If you choose carefully you can have Viburnums in flower from winter through to the end of summer. The flowers are often sweetly scented and are followed by very attractive ornamental berries. The deciduous varieties have excellent autumn leaf colour. Viburnums can be kept tidy by cutting back any straggly older shoots after flowering. You won't find this an arduous task and if you decide not to do it your Viburnum will still perform well for you.  

Most are frost hardy with the exception of Viburnum odoratissimum "Emerald Lustre" which will only tolerate a light frost. If you do have a frost free area this is a wonderful plant to add a lush tropical look as it has large rounded glossy green foliage with a hint of bronze. Some Viburnums are prone to attack from Thrip in summer, especially Viburnum tinus varieties such as "Eve Price" and "Gwenllian" but this is easily controlled (see care instructions on Rhododendron page) and should not detract from their overall value.  

Viburnums to consider:

Viburnum opulus sterile "Snowball Tree"

Gorgeous globular creamy white "Snowball" flower heads appear throughout spring. Just beautiful in full flower. Flowers look wonderful picked when in bud. Deciduous.  

Viburnum x burkwoodii

This is one of my very favourite flowering shrubs. White flowers open from tight pink buds and, oh, the perfume. Plant to take advantage of the scent. Good autumn colour. Deciduous.



Viburnum tinus Eve Price

Nice compact evergreen shrub which flowers from winter through to spring. The buds are deep carmine pink and open to clusters of blush white flowers. The flowers are followed by blue-black berries which hold well on the plant. The mid green foliage is lush and extremely tolerant of harsh weather conditions, even strong winds. Trims well and can be used as a hedge.

Picture of Viburnum Davidii Male

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

The male form of this little shrub is usually planted for one reason - to pollinate the female form so she will produce berries. On its own it forms a wide-spreading compact mound with dark green leathery leaves that have a pale under-side. Small creamy white flowers in spring. Evergreen.

For harmony in the garden it is usually recommended that one male Viburnum davidii be planted for every 3 females - not something we suggest you try at home folks.
