The Nannyberry Viburnum is a beautiful, tall, perennial shrub that blooms in the late spring. It provides beautiful white blooms. When most other flowers haven’t bloomed yet, this reliable shrub will help us welcome the warm season in late May with its many small white flowers that come together to create a beautiful flower contrasted by deep green foliage. Then, it transitions to blue and black berries that the birds will love. In the autumn, foliage turns a shade of red. 

This viburnum is a low maintenance perennial shrub that will grow vertically year after year, and is widely hardy in zones 2-8. Not only is it very hardy, it attracts a wide range of wildlife including butterflies, and songbirds as well. To add on to this shrub’s positive characteristics, it’s deer resistant and rabbit resistant. This shrub would be a beautiful border addition, or outside of fences where other shrubs would otherwise be at risk with wildlife. 

Nannyberry Viburnum Care

This perennial will thrive in either full or partial sun. It will survive with dry, or moist soil, though for the flowers sake it’s best to plant in moist, well drained soil. It can survive even if the soil is too moist. It doesn’t need to be watered unless it’s been dry for more than several days to a week. 

Viburnum doesn’t need to be pruned much, but perhaps just to keep it contained. This should be done after blooms are spent, as pruning it too early will result in no flower activity. 

Nannyberry Viburnum Spacing

This viburnum grows very tall to heights of 12-16 feet. For this reason, it should be spaced at 8-12 feet as well as it will get bigger with time.

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants 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.
