Viburnum Summer Snowflake


Viburnum Summer Snowflake

I love this little flowering shrub, it flowers beautifully for most of the summer into autumn:-) I have given it a big chop this year so it only has lower branches, which as you can see are doing well, hope I haven't ruined it:-)

whiter than snow, just lovely, can this be kept quite low ? You say little shrub so I assume about 1+1/2 m. Easy to maintain? Sun/Shade? I know I could look it up but if you dont mind answering I'd rather believe it, because I find, I get variable info from the net.

Hi Titchy, After many years, probably about 10, ( quite slow growing) it reached maybe 5'-6' so i have cut it back to about 1 foot high eek! The beauty of these is the wonderful tiered form of the branches. I have in the past cut back those that grew too far out whilst trying to keep its lovely shape. It has never bothered it, so i'm hoping it will regain its shape after its chop. I'll put another pic on later in the year. It's one small shrub I would always have:-)

Thank you very much for the info Bornagain, it's deff. on my list to get,but need to sort out my shrubs in the terraces first, some will have to come out and be replaced with something else as not all of them have taken or they are in the wrong place. So this year it's really a trial and error and judgement time but should have it all in the correct situation by next year. Thanks again.
