Spice Island Koreanspice Viburnum is smothered in stunning balls of fragrant white flowers with shell pink overtones at the ends of the branches from early to mid spring, which emerge from distinctive pink flower buds. It has green deciduous foliage. The heart-shaped leaves turn outstanding shades of red and burgundy in the fall. The black fruits are held in clusters from late summer to late fall.
Spice Island Koreanspice Viburnum is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
Spice Island Koreanspice Viburnum will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more. This variety requires a different selection of the same species growing nearby in order to set fruit.
This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
