Plant of the Week: Viburnum Suspensum

Viburnum Suspensum is a variety of viburnum that provides a lush, dark green foliage that can be used either as a foundation plant, lower growing hedge or a stand along plant. Viburnum Suspensum will bloom in the spring and early summer with a white flower, but the rest of the year is just green.

Viburnum Suspensum is a slower grower than it’s cousin- Viburnum Odo and can be kept trimmed lower with less effort. It’s normal growth is 4’-5’ high and 3’-4’ feet wide. It has very good salt tolerance, tolerates full sun or part shade and the deer normally don’t bother it.
