Viburnum are one of the workhorses of the garden. They have fantastically fragrant blooms early in the spring that attract many beneficial pollinators. The leathery, deep green leaves cover the branches in a dense mass. The branches grow in an appealing vase shape . The fall brings the red berries that mature to a metallic black and intense maroons and reds of the foliage. Korean Spice Viburnum is a subtle stunner.
Viburnum is useful planted as a foundation shrub, is considered in firewise planting plans and is at home in the Cottage Garden or used as informal hedging. A beautiful shrub that almost takes care of itself, this one does not require much pruning or watering.
Korean Spice Viburnum Care
Plant Viburnum in any well drained, but moist, soil. Extra irrigation may be needed until these shrubs establish and mature. The pH of the soil is not very important. Soil on the fertile side is more desirable. Mulching in the fall with organic compost or leaves will help to feed the soil and bulk it up with organic matter, making the soil more moisture retentive over time. A full sun to a partly shady spot is ideal.
Pruning should only be done after the blooms finish. Deadheading of the blooms will result in no berries for the fall and winter. If the shape really needs a lot of cutting back, do it in stages. Do not cut more than one third of the shrub out in any year.
Korean Spice Viburnum Spacing
Viburnum come in a range of sizes from somewhat small to tree-like large. Korean Spice is in the middle range, maturing to a height of 6-8 feet and width of 6-8 feet. Plant spacing is recommended at 6 foot on center when using Korean Spice Viburnum as an informal hedge.
