Viburnum odoratissimum “Sweet viburnum” White is a fast growing
evergreen species well suited a large dense screening plant or hedge.
Reaching around 4-5m depending on conditions. Fragrant flowers that appear in spring to early
summer followed by small red berries.
Growing conditions, Care and Pruning
Viburnum odoratissimun prefers full sun to part shade, a
well drained humus rich soil and a cool root run, so mulch is a good
idea. As they take well to pruning ‘Sweet Viburnums’ are suited to use
as hedging plants in a formal or informal style.
When planting dig in some well rotted compost
and aged manure, water in well with a seaweed fertiliser. An application
of slow release fertiliser in spring seems adequate. Once established
this is a reasonably drought tolerant plant but they do like a little
moisture, especially during extended dry periods.
