Pale pink flowers slowly fade to white on these fragrant flowers reminiscent of cloves. Hardiness, fragrance, and flower color are all good reasons to make room for a viburnum in your home landscape.
Viburnums are a versatile genus of multistemmed shrubs that are well suited to the home landscape due to their range of sizes and cultural adaptability. Some viburnums are noted for their fragrant flowers; most bear small fruit that may add visual interest. Many viburnums have attractive fall color. There are more than 100 different varieties of viburnum at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
