Viburnum lantana

From £7.95

Wayfaring Tree

The Viburnum lantana, like the closely related Viburnum opulus, is a gloriously informal hedge which brings colour throughout the growing season. The viburnum produces small white flowers in the spring and summer with 5 separate petals and then berries that start green and turn red, then black, all against a backdrop of lobed green leaves turning brilliant crimson as autumn approaches. You can get all this colour from a very hardy shrub that really is easy to care for. Your viburnum is a fast grower, but to keep it at optimum health add some organic fertiliser - if you were to mix it with some dog roses or elder, then the care regime would be the same for all three shrubs. Do not get too worried about the best place to plant a viburnum in your garden as it will do fine in all but the most difficult sites and tolerates some shade too.

All our trees and shrubs are grown to be the perfect size for best establishment. For most species this can range from 20-60cm above the root plug. If you would like to discuss specific sizes, please contact us.
