Mariesii Viburnum Hedge
Showy, flowering shrub
Mariessi Viburnum Hedge is a great flowering shrub to enhance your borders or to create a hedge. Growing 10-12 ft. tall with a 12-15 ft. spread, this deciduous shrub is both ornamental and useful. The color show begins in the spring when flat-topped clusters of white flowers burst open. They give way to red, berry-like drupes that turn black. Not only are these drupes ornamental, but they're also a great food source for birds. This shrub's foliage turns from dark green to burgundy-red to purple in the fall. Low maintenance and easy care, it performs best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Zones 5-8.
