New shrub? Consider the Maple Leaf Viburnum
Are you looking for a shrub to add some color to a garden? Then consider the Maple Leaf Viburnum! Easily identifiable by its maple-shaped leaves, it can grow four feet across and six feet tall. The Maple Leaf Viburnum blooms white blossoms with stamen in the spring and grows berries by late summer. When autumn arrives, its leaves turn into vibrant colors and add a splash of scenery to any garden. Requiring little maintenance and pest-resistant it is one of the hardiest plants around.
The Maple Leaf Viburnum is native to North America, typically found in the undergrowth of forests and along streams and lakes. It prefers a moist, well-drained, acidic environment but can tolerate dry soil once established. The shrub is primarily used for hedges, ground cover, pots, and barriers between different gardens and lawns. The shrub produces flat-tipped white flowers in the spring, followed by berries that ripen to a deep blue color in the fall. As autumn takes hold, its leaves turn red, dark purple, and pink, adding a dash of color to any landscape. The plant benefits the wildlife around it, attracting squirrels, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators that come to feed on its nectar and berries. Herbivores rarely touch it making it the plant for areas with high deer populations.
When picking one up from the nursery, ask for different genetic variations: the plant needs to cross-pollinate to produce its deep blue fall berries. The Maple Leaf Viburnum needs to be planted about three feet away from other vegetation and requires frequent irrigation when first planted but not so much once established. Viburnum spreads through rhizomes and suckers but is tolerant to pruning, best done in the late winter or early spring. Overall, it’s a beautiful and hardy plant that benefits the landscape and the organisms that live around it.
