Viburnum grandiflorum is a bushy, deciduous shrub with strongly veined green leaves, which have toothed edges. From January it bears clusters of fragrant, pale-pink flowers on bare stems, followed by the emergence of new leaves in late winter. It’s perfect for growing as a specimen shrub in a mixed border and also works well planted alongside other winter blooming shrubs or small trees like Hamamelis and Sarcococca.

Grow Viburnum grandiflorum in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost, and remove vertical shoots to retain the rounded shape of the shrub, after flowering.
