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.
