No more disappointment when purchasing an All That Glows or an All That Glitters viburnum and not realizing that they need each other as pollinators to create the beautiful blue berries! Here is a combination offer for one of each viburnum so you never have to worry about proper pollination and berry production again. Your songbirds are going to love you and you will appreciate the beautiful creamy white clusters of florets that give way to the blue/black berries for intriguing fall interest in your landscape. Just plant within 50 feet of each other and your frustrations are over.
Native to the Ohio Valley through to Missouri, viburnum dentatum v. deamii and both Glitters and Glows are hardy to Zone 4 to 8, creating a wide range of growing habitat in the United States. Treasured for their unique blue/black berries that provide late fall and winter interest in your landscape if the birds don’t eat them all, viburnums are a vigorous native shrub that is not over utilized in the home landscape. Perhaps it's always been the frustration of not knowing that they need a pollinator. These lovely medium size shrubs will thrive in full sun with some shade, or in full sun, making them a versatile landscape shrub for smaller yards and woodland gardens.
Glitters & Glows Viburnum Care
Viburnum prefer a slightly acidic to neutral soil pH, 5.8 to 6.5, and prefer a loamy rich moist soil. It does adapt to most soil that drains well, though. It is also adaptable to a full sun location and a partly sun location. This is an ideal woodland edge shrub where the sun meets the shadows. Coastal gardeners will appreciate its salt tolerance and all gardeners will appreciate its easy maintenance requirements. When planting out, amend native soil only if it is heavy and compacted and does not drain well. Use of a controlled release fertilizer should be all that is needed throughout the season. Water when it is very dry, but this hardy shrub is fairly heat and drought tolerant.
Prune only when needed to remove dead wood and even then, be selective as the flowers are produced each spring on old wood. Excessive pruning will sacrifice flowers and berry production for the following spring. Winter protection is generally not needed as these are hardy in all but the harshest winters. A thick layer of pine bark mulch can be used to cover the root zone if low temperatures are a concern.
Glitters & Glows Viburnum Spacing
Space your plants about 48 to 60 inches apart, and remember to plant the second half of this pair of shrubs within 50 feet of the first one. They will remain as a medium size shrub topping out at about 60 inches tall and wide. As a mass planting for a hedge or specimen in your wildlife gardens, you will appreciate the year long beauty this unique shrub will give you.
