Maintenance Notes

Viburnums are very low maintenance plants. They don't require regular pruning, though it's a good idea to remove very old stems each year after the plant has been established for several years, as old stems do not flower and fruit as abundantly as younger ones. 

Plant in well-drained soil. Viburnums are quite shade tolerant, but habit, flowering, and fruiting will be best if the plant gets some sun. 

If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer. 

Uses Notes

Viburnums are often used in landscaping around homes and make a nice hedge. Because this plant fruits best planted with red-fruited Cardinal Candy, you can mix and match them within the same planting or in other places in your yard for a multi-colored effect. 

PLEASE NOTE: For the most abundant berry, plant with Cardinal Candy® viburnum. Both plants will get berries.
