The name says it all for this spring beauty. The Spring Bouquet Viburnum shrub’s blooms emerge in a brilliant fragrant bouquet of uniquely elegant blossoms. They add a touch of class to any landscape with minimal maintenance!
The Spring Bouquet shrub is a beautiful semi-evergreen with delicately fragrant pinkish-white blossoms and dark green leaves. The lightly fragrant flowers cluster into groups during the early spring growing season and are star shaped. Bloom times may vary depending on location and some may continue to bloom their pink buds through the summer months.
The pink flower buds eventually turn into metallic blue berries as new plant growth emerges in the fall. The berries attract birds and other wildlife as they can be eaten freely on the horizontal branches. In some planting locations, it can become a deciduous shrub as winter appears and lose some of its fall foliage.
The Viburnum tinus spring bouquet’s dense and compact growth habit makes this a favorite choice among landscapers and garden designers used as a hedge, screen or foundation plant. This species of viburnum bush stays between 4-6 feet tall and wide.
Spring Bouquet Viburnum Care
The Spring Bouquet Viburnum Compactum is a hardy shrub that prefers full sun to partial shade. The shrub does best in moist but well-drained soil and will tolerate a wide range of soil types like sandy sites or clay if drainage is adequate. It does not tolerate wet soils and does not like wet feet.
The shrub is drought tolerant once established. Little spring bouquet viburnum pruning is needed to maintain its attractive features. You can prune viburnum into a small tree if that is the desired look. At mature size, the Viburnum tinus Spring Bouquet height grows up to 4-6 feet tall and wide.
Grows well across the southern United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 7-11. The best time of year to plant the spring viburnum shrub is in spring or fall. All viburnums give great fall color.
It is very easy to grow and pest and disease resistant. Water deeply the first year to grow and thrive and establish a strong root system. A slow release fertilizer in the early spring will help the plant establish its root system.
This evergreen shrub with dark green foliage and dainty white flowers that leave a pinkish hue is one of our favorites!
