Viburnum obovatum features small dark green leaves and a showy flowering bloom period in early spring followed by small bursts of fragrant flower clusters occurring nearly year round. The bloom times make it an excellent plant to show in your front yard. It has dark green foliage which emerges coppery-bronze in spring. The small glossy oval leaves turn an outstanding coppery-bronze in the autumn giving it excellent fall color.
The creamy white flowers will light up any landscape and the foliage color stays green year-round. Following the flowers are bright red fruit or red berries that attract birds and other wildlife. This dwarf shrub is a native plant from North America and commonly seen in areas of the South including Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia.
Mrs. Schiller’s is also an excellent specimen or foundation plant. It can also be left as an unpruned, natural hedge or screen plant or can be used in a more formal garden/landscape. It is also known for being extremely useful in difficult areas to plant in such as parking lots, roads, power line rights-of-way, and highway medians.
