Welcome spring with sweet fragrance! Sweet Talker viburnum doesn't need the gift of gab to charm you: it does it all by being one of the very first shrubs to bloom in late winter/early spring. Look forward to hundreds of pink, trumpet-shaped flowers that emit a spicy honey scent, even in those first early days of spring sunshine. The rest of the year, enjoy very handsome leathery foliage that is ideal for landscaping around your home, gardens, or hedging. Foliage takes on dramatic purple-burgundy tones in cool weather. Sweet Talker viburnum was developed by legendary plant breeder Dr. Tom Ranney, who wanted to combine the beauty of early-blooming viburnums with the heat tolerance of less showy ones.
Available in better garden centers in spring 2021.
