If you have room for a large, wide-spreading shrub, this is one of the best multi-season shrubs you can grow. Doublefile viburnum develops a branching pattern with strong horizontal layers as it matures. This creates an interesting winter framework. It is difficult for any other shrub to match the brilliant floral display in the spring: Its branches are smothered with flat sprays of pure white flowers, giving the impression of snow-laden branches. Later in summer clusters of red berries rest where the flowers once stood. fall brings on a fiery autumnal show of saturated reds. It is wide spreading, so give it plenty of space to develop its spectacular form. For smaller spaces consider removing its lower branches to create a small, multi-stemmed tree.

This tough shrub grows best in full sun to light or open shade. It prefers well-drained soil, but will tolerate sandy sites or clay if the drainage is adequate. Once established it only needs occasional watering during dry weather. Very little pruning is needed and excessive pruning can ruin the layered branching pattern. Consult an experienced pruner or take local classes before attempting to prune.
