Why plant Sweet Viburnum?
Nothing is sweeter than the Sweet Viburnum! This evergreen, native to Asia, delights the eyes with its dark green glossy leaves throughout the entire year. In spring, this shrub emulates beauty by producing fragrant clusters of delicate little flowers, often white with a funnel like shape. These little guys love the company of pollinators, inviting butterflies and bees to dance across your property! With a speedy growth rate, the Sweet Viburnum is capable of growing to heights and widths upwards of 20', depending on how you decide to style this beautiful plant around your home. In fall, fruit production occurs and tiny red drupes appear as a delightful snack for the birds!
How to use Sweet Viburnum in the landscape?
Sweet Viburnum offers a fast growing habit, making these shrubs a perfect option for a hedge or privacy screen. Another perk of the Sweet Viburnum is the sweet fragrance offered by the blooms during the spring months. Plant this shrub near walkways, around the patio, or at entry ways, providing not only visual aesthetics but a lovely fragrant landscape and welcoming atmosphere to your property.
Hardiness Zone: 8-10
How To Plant Sweet Viburnum
The Sweet Viburnum, while being shade tolerant, does enjoy its sunlight and this aids in flower production! It has a high drought tolerance, adaptable to many soil types.
How To Water
Watering your Sweet Viburnum weekly will ensure its best growth and root system production. After that, it can survive without additional irrigation.
How To Fertilize
While not being heavy feeders, the Sweet Viburnum can absolutely benefit from fertilizer. Once a year, in early spring, we recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food to ensure a long, happy, and healthy life. An added bonus, after the first bloom of the year you may add a little fertilizer to boost bloom rate and foliage color.
How To Prune
Pruning your Sweet Viburnum is not necessary but it may be done in late winter or early spring. Depending on your eye for design, most pruning for this shrub is done for shaping purposes. Although, you may remove any dead or damaged branches as needed.
How Does Shipping Work?
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees and shrubs, Size XL and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 3 weeks to be delivered.
Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations.
Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.
From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health.
Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
