It’s time for Viburnum to shine in the spring landscape. The Korean Spice Viburnum are in bloom now and the 6/7′ V. carlesii ‘Aurora’ are no exception. The domed flower clusters are made of hundreds of tiny pink buds that open to fragrant white flowers, and the stiff branches hold them up effortlessly. The strong fragrance is noticed from a distance and almost sweeter than honey – it’s hard to resist walking right up to it and taking a deep whiff.
Korean Spice Viburnum has been used in gardens everywhere for good reason – they shine in spring, have nice foliage through the summer and have brilliant red fall color. The stiff branches hold up to snow loads then start budding up in late winter for their spring performance. Plant in full sun or light open shade in average soil. Looking for a smaller size? We have V. carlesii and V. carlesii ‘Compacta’ and ‘Diane’ in containers and some in B&B sizes.
