Sweet viburnum care is delightfully simple, as long as you plant the tree in an appropriate site. This large shrub establishes quickly in either a full sun or a shady location. It needs irrigation for the first growing seasons. However, once it establishes a solid root system, it grows perfectly happily without much irrigation.
- Light Needs: Full Sun or Partial Sun
- Watering Needs: Water regularly while it is established. Keep ground moist by mulching around the plants.
Growing sweet viburnum bushes (Viburnum odoratissimum) adds the delightful element of fragrance to your garden. This member of the large viburnum family offers showy, snowy spring blossoms with a very appealing scent. The extremely fragrant flowers of the sweet viburnum are tiny, but the shrub is enormous. At 20 feet tall, it qualifies as a small tree. In springtime, the entire canopy is covered with the tiny blossoms. This has long made it a landscape favorite.
