Viburnums.... ah, the variety, the beauty, the sheer size and OOmph they offer. The esteemed Michael Dirr says this :"A garden without viburnums is like a life without the pleasures of music and art." Truly, they are a wonder of native plant goodness!
This week we are offering two on sale: The Compact Korean Spice bush will grow 4-6' tall and wider, maybe 5' across. They produce early spring blooms that rival lilacs in their intoxicating scent! Hardy, they can take lots of pruning, sun, drought (once established)and even partial shade.
The Juddii variety grows a bit bigger, 6-8' and as wide. It offers much of the same bloom quality, hardiness, etc. Both of these varieties have berries in the summer/ fall/ winter (red turning to black) to entice birds into a wildlife garden and provide winter interest in your landscape.
Got questions? Want a different variety? Want to know your choices? Come visit us this week! These big beauties, 3-4' tall right now, are on sale for $24.99. This is a good deal and quantities are limited!
