Spring Bouquet ViburnumSpring Bouquet viburnum is an attractive dwarf evergreen shrub that can grow up to 5 feet tall. The oval leaves are glossy green all year round. In the spring, reddish-pink bud clusters open to pinkish-white flowers with a deep fragrance.
Later in the season, the plant grows metallic blue berries that ripen to blue-black. It prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. It can still be grown in colder areas if planted in a sheltered location.
To get the berries, you need a second viburnum variety nearby. The fruit is not edible and will cause mild stomach upset if eaten. The flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies and birds.
Landscaping IdeasSpring Bouquet viburnum is a showy little shrub that makes a splash in the garden. It attracts wildlife to the garden with its sweet fragrant flowers, and birds like the blue berries that form later.
It is evergreen, so it provides interest year round. It is most frequently used as a specimen plant or a hedge. It makes a nice background shrub for perennial beds, in a foundation planting or along a fence line.
They also look nice in mass plantings. It can also be planted in front of tall vining plants like honeysuckle on a trellis.
Planting And CareSpring Bouquet viburnum should be planted in full sun or partial shade for the best results. It grows slowly. Water it moderately with at least one good deep watering every month in the summer.
Fertilize in late spring with a complete fertilizer.
Prune after blooming to shape as needed. If you have several forming a hedge, pruning will be necessary to keep them in line. Always prune out any dead or damaged areas of the plant.
Spring Bouquet viburnum may be affected by rust, gray mold, sooty mold, downy mildew, and leaf spots. Insect pests include weevils, thrips and aphids. Spray with a systemic insecticide when you notice bleached or blackened leaves.
