An attractive evergreen shrub that is smaller growing, producing pink and white clusters of flowers over a long period from winter until spring, followed by fruits in summer that turn royal blue; can tolerate some shade; can be trained as a small tree

Ornamental Features

Spring Bouquet Viburnum features showy cymes of lightly-scented pink star-shaped flowers with white overtones at the ends of the branches from late fall to early spring, which emerge from distinctive red flower buds. The royal blue fruits are held in abundance in spectacular clusters in mid summer. It has dark green foliage. The glossy pointy leaves remain dark green throughout the winter.

Landscape Attributes

Spring Bouquet Viburnum is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting birds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Spring Bouquet Viburnum is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Spring Bouquet Viburnum will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
