Viburnum awabuki 'Chindo'

A native to South Korea, Awabuki is one of the fastest growing viburnums available. The leaves emerge light green,  turning dark green and reaching up to eight inches long; they are very lustrous and have a leathery texture to them.  It’s best to prune in late winter to promote even, uniform growth throughout the summer – it won’t hurt to prune the excessive growth midsummer to put another flush round of foliage before winter. Grows unchecked as a large shrub, but can easily be trimmed into a small, multi-branched tree with a natural round canopy.

Fragrant white blooms appear in the late spring, leaving red berries soon after that turn black by the fall, attracting birds easily. As with all viburnums, it has some of the highest deer tolerance. Best grown in moist, fertile soils but can be forgiving of slightly less conditions.
