Reserve space in your landscape for the beautiful and fragrant Koreanspice viburnum. Select a location near a window, along a walkway or by your patio or deck where you can enjoy the fragrant spring blooms, lovely summer foliage and outstanding fall color.
Grow Koreanspice viburnum in full sun or partial shade with moist well-drained soil for best results. Mulch the soil surrounding the shrub to keep the roots cool and moist. Not only is it low maintenance, it also tolerates black walnut toxicity.
This rounded shrub needs minimal pruning if planted in a location large enough to accommodate its mature size of 4 to 6 feet tall and 4 to 6 or 8 feet wide. Wait until right after the spring flowers fade if pruning is needed.
Combine Koreanspice viburnum with other zones 4 to 8 hardy shrubs and perennials to extend color and fragrance throughout the season.
A bit more information: Several new cultivars are now on the market. Spice Island® was introduced for its late flowering and compact growth. Sugar ‘N Spice™ has an abundance of petite fragrant blooms and grows 8 feet tall and wide.
