Viburnum is a genus with around 192 deciduous, semi-evergreen or evergreen trees and shrubs from the Viburnaceae family. These plants have attractive foliage that displays good autumn colour and they are also grown for their pretty white or pink 5-petalled flowers. Leading onto attractive red, purple or black fruits. Flowers are produced in clusters, on structures with longer outer stems compared to the inner ones, creating a flat-topped inflorescence called a corymb. Some species have scented flowers.
How to propagate Viburnum
Propagate by simple layering in the autumn, by cuttings (softwood for deciduous species, semi-ripe for evergreens) in summer, hardwood cuttings in the winter.
Seed in autumn.
