The flat white lace-cap florets take on a pink blush that increases with age. The blooms of Viburnum ‘Tomentosum’ are followed by ornamental scarlet berries that age to black (inedible for us but the birds love them).

Viburnum Tomentosum has a lovely horizontal branch structure. If the blooms are fertilized they will mature to ornamental rose red fruits that age to black (inedible – but they look good and the birds love them). There is a better chance of berries through cross pollination, so planting more than one Viburnun is an easy and rewarding decision.

Viburnums are vigorous shrubs that become dry tolerant once they establish. Viburnums offer year round interest with a different show for every season; spring and summer flowers and or berries, autumn foliage and winter branch structure. Adding shrubs such as these to your garden provides good structure or bones to the garden and make great specimen plants.

Viburnums will grow in moderately fertile, to humus rich, moist soils and like good drainage. Suitable for a part shade to full sun position. Prune out the odd vertical branching after the flowers gave finished.
