Viburnum is an all around great shrub for just about any garden. Sugar-n-Spice® Korean Spice Viburnum is a deciduous variety that has it all. Lovely foliage that changes color from summer to fall, intensely scented flowers that attract any pollinator that is in your area and a great compact growth habit that needs minimal upkeep.
Korean Spice Viburnum also sets berries for the fall and winter that birds are very attracted to. The lovely, waxy flowers can be used for flower arranging alongside the foliage that acts as a filler for the vase. The compact size of Sugar-n-Spice Viburnum makes it easier to incorporate into an existing garden as a specimen or plant as part of an informal hedge along a driveway or fenceline.
Sugar-n-Spice® Korean Spice Viburnum Care
Viburnum can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions. Full sun to part shade is fine. Average to rich soil is definitely a plus. Acidic to alkaline soil is no problem. Consistent watering early is the key to making Sugar-n-Spice® Korean Spice Viburnum more drought tolerant as it establishes in the garden. Soaker hoses or drip irrigation are the most efficient ways to ensure proper watering.
Pruning should only be done after flowering to ensure blooms the following season. Sugar-n-Spice® will need much less pruning to keep its naturally compact shape. A slow release, well balanced fertilizer applied early in the spring will support healthy foliage growth and profuse blooming. Mulching with an organic compost or leaves in the fall will insulate the shrub over the winter while enriching and boosting the water holding capacity of the soil.
Sugar-n-Spice® Korean Spice Viburnum Spacing
The mature height and width of Sugar-n-Spice® is 6-8 feet. Mass planting of this Viburnum is very effective in a large garden. Sugar-n-Spice® can be used in a smaller garden as a specimen plant or even as a container growing shrub on a deck or patio. Space the shrubs at 6 feet on center when planting in the ground. A pot must be at least 24 inches in diameter, with excellent drainage, if growing in a container.
