Much loved for its autumnal color, the Mapleleaf Viburnum is a superb shrub for partial or dappled shade. The Viburnum acerifolium, as it is botanically named, is a deciduous shrub that produces maple-like leaves that change from green to purplish red in the fall. In late spring, it develops tiny white clusters of flowers that are adored by pollinators and are a key source of wild nectar, before turning into fruit for the birds. 

The Mapleleaf Viburnum is native to North American woodlands and is a magnet for all sorts of wildlife. It is smaller than some other viburnums, but produces suckers and naturalizes readily in the right conditions. Growing to around 6 feet tall, it is ideal for the back of a border or mixed hedge.

Mapleleaf Viburnum Care

Although able to cope with a range of soils, the Mapleleaf Viburnum is happiest when grown in well-drained soil that is slightly acidic. Naturally preferring woodland cover, this shrub seems to thrive when grown in partial or dappled shade. Regular watering is necessary for the first few years as its roots establish. Extra fertilization is not generally required.

Pruning this shrub is not strictly required. However, the size can be reduced in late winter if desired. To conserve moisture and to suppress any weeds, a layer of organic mulch can be applied in spring. 

Mapleleaf Viburnum Spacing

Mapleleaf Viburnum can reach an eventual size of around 6-7 feet tall by 4-5 feet wide. When planting this shrub in a group, use a distance of 4 feet between plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
