This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Domed clusters of fragrant, white flowers opening from pink buds in May and broadly heart-shaped, dark green leaves, turning red in autumn. This deciduous, spring-flowering viburnum is perfect for partly shady areas of the garden. To fully appreciate the splendid scent chose a site close to an entrance or path.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Where necessary remove any misplaced or diseased branches in mid-summer after flowering.
