For Sale: Mariesii and Blackhaw Viburnums
Viburnums are the most attractive, versatile, adaptable shrubs for any landscape. They can be used as hedges or screens and in mixed perennial and shrub borders. They can also stand as specimen plants. They usually in the form of shrubs, but can become small ornamental trees.(sieboldi) They range in size from the small Dwarf American Cranberry at 2 feet tall by 2 feet wide, to the Siebold at over 15 feet tall.
Viburnums are plants with year round interest. All Viburnums have profuse white to pink flowers in the spring. Some are fragrant. They have large, attractive and often textured leaves. Some viburnums have wonderfully fragrant flowers that are produced in snowball like clusters in the spring. The flower clusters can be of pink buds, which develop into white flowers. Some fruits are red and turn black with age. Leaves are glossy, dark green and turn a burgundy color in the fall. Midsummer berries are an important food source for birds. Viburnums are a must for the avid birder. Viburnums can have colorful red to purple leaves. Some viburnums can become medium-size trees, especially if they are pruned. Viburnums are specimen plants or as anchors in mixed borders and hedges. You won't find a more versatile group of shrubs for hedges or for massing in groups, since viburnums hold their own in every season and landscape. Some viburnums, such as Prague viburnum, are evergreen and have fragrant flowers. Others, such as leatherleaf viburnum, are semi-evergreen in colder climates, losing their leaves when temperatures dip below 10 degrees.
The best features of Viburnums is their adaptability and durability. While they would prefer full sun and moderately watered, well-drained rich soils, they will grow very well in part shade in alkaline, clay soils. Diseases and pests rarely attack them. My kids have run over them with brush hogs and they survived.
