Description

One of the most popular evergreens, giving pleasure throughout the winter with its pink budded flowers appearing in autumn and flowering continuously into early spring. Small blue ovid fruit appear after flowering. An excellent shrub for all but the coldest areas. It like sun but will tolerate shade and succeeds well near the sea. It makes a good hedge being a winter-flowering evergreen and easy to care for. Grow in sun or semi shade in deep fertile not too dry soil. Thin out older shoots after flowering if necessary. The Standard will require shaping and is usually done after flowering. Do not forget to weed, mulch and compost and water if the Viburnum is being kept in a pot or container. Good for birds.
