Incredible Fragrance from an Evergreen Hedge
Every season is splendid for the Sweet Viburnum. Spring is greeted with creamy, white flowers that will fill your garden with an alluring aroma. Come fall, it produces berries that turn from red to black as the season cools. Birds love these berries, but pests tend to stay away.
Plant as Accent or Main Attraction
The Sweet Viburnum can grow up to 20 feet tall so it works well as a background hedge, privacy screen, or small tree if given enough time and space. Also makes an ideal ornamental addition to any garden and works well in containers – just allow for plenty of root space. This dense shrub can tolerate light frost, but prefers sunny climates.
Any Soil Will Do
A very forgiving evergreen, the Sweet Viburnum tolerates drought and salt water. Prefers well-drained soil, but it does not matter which type you use. Take softwood cuttings every summer to stimulate growth, and you should prune annually if you are using as a screen.
