Description

The Sugar Cookie Sweet Viburnum from the Southern Living Plant Collection provides a twist on the traditional Sweet Viburnum. The Sugar Cookie is more compact than traditional varieties, and doesn’t grow nearly as large either, maxing out at 5-6′ H x 5-6′ W. Dense foliage emerges a light green before maturing to an attractive, dark emerald green. Furthermore, this viburnum is evergreen, meaning it won’t leave your landscape looking bare in winter. In addition, this Viburnum features dynamic, eye-catching red foliage in Winter, creating even more interest in your winter landscape.

Spring sees the production of small white flower clusters that are delicately beautiful. These blossoms are notably fragrant, with a sweet scent that is sure to attract butterflies. Additionally, bird lovers will appreciate the Sugar Cookie as birds will frequently build nests in their sturdy branches.

The Sugar Cookie is notably heat tolerant, as well as disease and pest resistant. Therefore, this shrub is truly at home in Southern landscapes.

 

Sugar Cookie Sweet Viburnum Care

Hardy in USDA Zones 8-10.

Plant the Sugar Cookie Sweet Viburnum in Full Sun to Part Shade.

Water regularly until it has established itself in your landscape, traditionally the first few months. Afterwards, provide supplemental watering during dry weeks.

This shrub is not picky when it comes to soil types, however, Viburnums are known for preferring acidic soil over alkaline. It is important that your planting location has good drainage though.

Fertilize in early spring with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer. This will ensure that it has the nutrients needed to grow and thrive. Alternatively, organic gardeners should use a balanced organic fertilizer in early spring and then reapply every couple months during the growing season.

Prune after the initial spring bloom cycle in order to encourage dense growth, or to maintain shape/size.
