Sandanqua Viburnum
Viburnum suspensum

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 8a-11  Find Your Zone 

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8a, where this Viburnum is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

Sandanqua Viburnum is a trouble-free, very handsome and fast-growing evergreen flowering shrub with many uses in the landscape. The dark green and densely cover the shrub making it a perfect selection for a mid-size natural or clipped formal hedge. The leaves are oval in shape with serrated edges and about 3 inches long. Beginning in late winter and sporadically throughout the spring and summer clusters of tubular white flowers with hints of pink are produced at the tips of branches, followed by a crop of bright berries in fall that the birds will love once they've ripened. 

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 6 to 12 feet tall and 6-12 feet wide at maturity, Sandanqua Viburnum can be grown as a large shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive small tree ideal for use as an eye-catching specimen or grouping in landscape and flowering shrub borders. Also useful to frame corners, accentuate entryways, or as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings . A welcome addition to cut flower gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Cultural Preferences

Viburnum is very easy to grow in most any average, most but well drained soil and full sun to part shade. It prefers a loamy soil of average fertility. 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. For best flowering, at least 5 hours of direct sunlight per day is suggested. Responds very well to pruning for shaping, size control and tree forming. Prune as needed immediately after flowering.
