Plants: Viburnum davidii - David viburnum

Posted by havlis 01.02. 2010 13:53:15 (17050 readers)

David viburnum is a handsome, compact little shrub, with eye-catching foliage. The leaves are elliptic, emerald green with pink-red stalks, and have remarkable deep veins, which give this shrub an additional 3D image. The flower buds are pink-ish, too, but the flowers themselves are not what this plant stands for, though you might like to be lucky enough to have them pollinated to see the sky blue fruits rippening in the autumn.

It is an ideal border plant. It will look great at the front of an evergreen arrangement, or even in group with conifers. Requires slightly acidic soil and a spot sheltered from wind and strong morning sun mainly in the spring. It withstands low temperatures of USDA zone 6 (-23°C) if covered in snow, if not, protect it with fleece or greens in harsh winter. This gorgeous plant is really worth a little extra effort!
