Viburnum, Suspensum

Sandankwa Viburnum

Viburnum suspensum

Native to Japan, the Sandankwa Viburnum is an excellent deer resistant shrub with an open spreading growth habit. Branches quickly grow out of the main shrub, but regular pruning will encourage a small, compact and full shape. Unpruned, it will grow ragged, reaching up to twelve feet tall and wide. The leaves start light green, but become dark green as they mature. They are oval-shaped with serrated edges, highly aromatic, and sometimes used in flower arrangements.

Small tubular flowers are borne on the ends of new branches in the spring, and sporadically appear in the summer. They are white to pale pink, followed by small red berries in the fall that attract wildlife. Moist, well drained soils are highly recommended.
