The Awabuki Viburnum has large, leathery, medium to light green, glossy leaves and clusters of extremely fragrant, small white flowers in spring. Later, small red berries form and turn black when mature. Considered an evergreen, it is one of the fastest growing Viburnum varieties. Left to grow naturally, it can become a large shrub, but can easily be trimmed into a small tree form if desired. Best to prune in winter to promote even growth no matter which shape is preferred. Recommended to plant in full sun to light shade in Zones 7-10, this shrub can gain a mature height of 12-15’ with a 10-15’ spread and has high deer tolerance. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 3 and 7 gallon containers.
