A show for all seasons, enjoy lovely lace caps flowers in spring, to summer then it is the berries turn to dazzle. In autumn the foliage turns gorgeous shades of purple red, and in winter you can enjoy the handsome branch structure.
The red, ornamental berries almost steal the show! They begin from the middle of the summer and are still decorating the branches come winter!* The more Viburnum you have planted, the better the berries are likely to be, through cross pollination.
Viburnums are often unsung heroes of the garden, but once you see them in action, you just have to have one! There are a great variety to choose from, each with something special to offer.
Viburnums are vigorous shrubs that become dry tolerant once they establish. 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.
The name Viburnum ‘Notcutts’ is taken from Notcutts Nursery in the UK.
The berries are edible in small quantities, but are very acidic so you are unlikely to eat too many!
