Viburnum, whether evergreen or deciduous, is certainly a shrub for all seasons: there’s ‘Diana’ to usher in spring and ‘Summer Snowflake’ adorning graduation and June weddings. Blazing with autumn color, and all bearing lustrous fruit through winter to attract feathered visitors, these graceful shrubs exhibit an enduring cold hardiness.
They prefer rich, moist soil and bloom best in full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade.
Pink buds burst forth into waxy white blossoms as spring’s tender greenery attires this
relatively tightset Egolf cultivar. Rounded flower heads feature bud and blossom simultaneously, creating a lovely two-toned effect. Lining the spreading branches, handsome, semisheened dark green foliage gives way to an orange-red hue in fall. A stellar stand-alone in the mixed border, ‘Cayuga’ claims Viburnum carlesii and Viburnum carlcephalum lineage, and adapts to an array of growing conditions.
Blooms late April.
Size: 5' high x 6' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Viburnum ‘Cayuga’ (S-0574)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
