USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-8b  Find Your Zone >

Special Attributes

'Igloo' Viburnum got it's name from the look of the full-to-the-ground, dome shaped mound it forms when covered with flowers in spring. This superior selection is a three-season color factory providing abundant color spring to fall. In spring, it's branches are literally smothered in very pretty white flowers arranged in lacecap clusters. Following the flowers are abundant clusters of scarlet-red flowers that provide added color and are enjoyed by birds. In fall, the deep green foliage turns deep maroon and then to a vivid red. A truly spectacular shrub that deserves a spot in every garden where it will grow!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mound 6 to 8 feet tall and 8 to 10 feet wide, Igloo Doublefile Viburnum makes for a nice specimen in the landscape that is truly spectacular when in bloom. Is also useful in home foundation plantings against a large, open wall.




Cultural Preferences

Igloo Doublefile Viburnum is very easy to grow in full sun to part shade and most any average garden soil that is moist but well-drained. As with so many other ornamental shrubs it does not like constantly soggy or wet soil, which can cause problems with the roots. In our gardens here in Zone 8a of north-central Georgia, we've found it looks and performs its best with a little shade or filtered sun during the hottest part of summer afternoons. That said, in zones 5a to 7a it should do fine in all day sun, or partial shade.
