Korean Spice Viburnum (Viburnum carlesii)

Koreanspice Viburnum is an upright and round shrub that has beautiful pink flowers that fade to white and are very fragrant. Bright red berries follow the flowers and fade to black in the fall which attracts birds. This shrub works great for foundation plantings, shrub borders, and as a backdrop for perennials. Typically, Koreanspice Viburnum grows 4-6′ tall and wide, but under optimal conditions, can grow up to 8′. It also has tolerance against juglone, the chemical produced by Black Walnut trees that inhibit the growth in certain species of plants.
