Special Attributes

Korean Spice Viburnum, Viburnum carlesii, is well known for its large, fragrant snowball-shaped flower clusters produced in abundance during the spring season. Pink flower buds open to gorgeous aromatic white clusters 4 inches across that fill your garden with wonderful fragrance. Red berries follow the flowers and add to the appeal of this attractive plant. Can be grown as a large shrub or lower branches removed to form an attractive, small specimen tree. Make sure to plant this one near patios, decks, porches and other outdoor areas where the fragrance can be enjoyed from up close.




Landscape & Garden Uses

With an upright habit and rounded form 8 to 10 feet tall and wide, the Korean Spice Viburnum is ideal for use as a specimen or in groupings in landscape and flowering shrub borders. As this Viburnum grows taller, lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive small tree useful as a focal point specimen in landscape borders or home foundation plantings. A fine addition to fragrance gardens, white theme gardens, cut flower gardens, cottage gardens, and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing: 6 feet apart for hedge; 14 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Viburnum is very easy to grow in moist but well drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. It prefers a loamy soil so amend heavy clay or poor soils with compost, bagged top soil or other organic matter. As with so many other ornamental plants, it does not like constantly soggy or wet conditions. Very drought tolerant when established and we've seen no serious pest or disease problems. Deer haven't touched it in our gardens. We suggest 5 hours or more of direct sunlight for best flowering. Responds very well to pruning for shaping, size control and tree forming. Prune as needed immediately after flowering.
