Viburnums

Native to North America or to Asia, Viburnum shrubs include deciduous and evergreen shrubs with multi-season interest: sweetly fragrant flowers, colorful berries, stunning fall colors ranging from glossy red to scarlet or purple. Viburnums make excellent hedge or screen plants, foundation shrubs or specimen plants. Easy to grow, most enjoy moist, rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils and are not seriously troubled by diseases or pests.
