Viburnums have long been one of the most popular flowering landscape shrubs. There are over 150 species of Viburnum. You can find a variety to suit any garden need: wet or dry, sun or shade, natural or formal, shrub or tree, native or exotic. Bloom times span early spring through June and are followed by attractive fruit and outstanding fall foliage. Most viburnums prefer full sun but will adjust to partial shade. They like a moderately fertile soil. In general, viburnums are not terribly particular about where they grow. Viburnums are well behaved members of the honeysuckle family. They are either shrubs or trees. The tree forms may require some pruning to achieve the desired shape. Viburnums work great as hedges or in mass groupings and also make interesting specimen plants or anchors in borders. Most viburnums have either white or pinkish flowers which are sometimes fragrant.
