Evergreen shrub

Susy is a four season sharp dresser.

Her slightly fragrant flowers have pink buds, opening pure white, and they cover the shrub in spring.

Excellent, heat-tolerant summer foliage is dark green. In some winters the evergreen (semi-evergreen in harsh winters) turns red for winter.

The red-turning-black fruits appear in autumn and they're just as showy as the flowers. Birds love them.

At this height (10-12 feet tall), it's not going to swallow your lawn like a Green Giant arborvitea or southern magnolia, so is a good choice for dignified screening of stuff you'd rather not see. 

Susy is a hybrid seedling of Eskimo that is itself a hybrid of V. utile and Cayuga (itself a seedling of V. carlesii x V. x carlcephaulm). If I kept going you'd suddenly think you were reading Genesis or Numbers in Sunday School.

  • evergreen to semi-evergreen screening material that's different from your neighbors' common hollies
  • a tough plant for the deep south
heat tolerant, fragrant flowers, bird food

To Make It Thrive
Service viburnum hybrids need only a tolerably warm climate (zones 7 and warmer), full or at least partial sun, and moist-but-draining soils to thrive. That would be pretty much your average household landscape in the Deep South. Mulch it and supply some supplemental irrigation, if you are allowed, during a drought.

This is, uh, getting rather large. I don't think I gave it enough space. What can I do?
No problem, get out your handpruners and prune it back to just above a node. A node is where leaves attach to a branch and buds are located there. Viburnums respond well to judicious and thoughtful pruning, just don't sheer them!
