(Mrs. Schiller's Delight Viburnum)


Hardiness Zones:

 6a  6b  7a  7b  8a  8b  9a  9b

Quick Overview:

A wonderful compact rounded cultivar, with showy clusters of snowy white flowers in early spring followed by red fruit in summer that matures to black; adaptable, makes a great garden specimen.


Winter hardy to USDA Zones 7-9 (probably also Zone 6) where it is easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Tolerates close to full shade. Best growth occurs with consistent and even moisture. Tolerates wet soils in the wild. This is an evergreen shrub, but it tends to be semi-evergreen to deciduous near the northern edge of its growing range. Plants appreciate some afternoon shade in hot summer climates. In optimum growing conditions, plants may spread by suckers to form thickets. If growth is attempted in USDA Zone 6, plants should be sited in protected locations and given a winter mulch.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
