Special Attributes

Very easy to grow with exceptional drought tolerance, ‘Mrs. Schiller’s Delight’ is a low-maintenance dwarf cultivar of Walter’s Viburnum. It is a beautiful but very tough evergreen shrub that produces a spectacular flower show with an abundance of pretty white flower clusters that nearly smother the foliage in spring. After flowering you'll see abundant bright red fruits that turn to black that are loved and enjoyed by birds. The small textured leaves and four-season appeal make this durable flowering shrub an eye catching and low maintenance selection for the landscape!



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 3-5 feet tall and wide, Mrs. Schiller's Delight Viburnum is an evergreen selection ideal for use as an accent, grouped or massed, or in straight hedges or staggered rows in home foundation plantings and landscape and flowering shrub borders.

Suggested Spacing:  3 feet for solid hedges;  8 feet + for space between plants



Cultural Preferences

Mrs. Schiller's Delight Viburnum is very easy to grow in a wide range of soils. It prefers a moist but well-drained soil when young however is tolerant of dry soil conditions when established. As with so many other ornamental shrubs, it does not like a constantly soggy or wet soil, which can cause problems with the roots. Choose a planting site that receives full sun to part shade. For best flowering, at least 5 hours of direct sunlight per day is suggested. Responds very well to pruning for shaping and size control. Prune as needed immediately after flowering.
