Viburnum dilatatum Cardinal Candy® (Linden Viburnum)

Linden Viburnum Cardinal Candy®, Viburnum dilatatum 'Henneke' PP12870


Noted for its excellent winter hardiness, Viburnum dilatatum Cardinal Candy® (Linden Viburnum) is a compact deciduous shrub of upright to rounded habit with a long season of interest. In late spring to early summer, the shrub is covered with abundant clusters of fragrant, lacy, creamy white flowers. They are followed by showy, pendulous clusters of bright red berries in fall, which persist through winter to the delight of hungry birds. In the fall, the handsome foliage of broad-ovate, wrinkled, dark green leaves, turns shades of bronze and burgundy-red. A very rewarding shrub which is not only good-looking, but also very tough and easy to grow. To ensure abundant fruit production, plant two or more Linden Viburnums near each other.

  • A full sun or part shade lover, this plant is easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Tolerates a wide range of soils. Some drought tolerance once established.
  • Perfect as a specimen plant, or for shrub borders, hedges and screens and foundation plantings.
  • Attractive to birds and butterflies, but deer and rabbit resistant.
  • Low maintenance, this plant is virtually pest and disease free.
  • Prune as needed immediately after flowering
  • Native to China, Japan
