Viburnum carlesii ‘Diana’
at Digging Dog

Korean Spicebush

Viburnum

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.

Some say her ambrosial fragrance can waft over 30 ft. away. We say you’ll want to plant this compact, medium-sized beauty as soon as possible. Tinged chocolate when young, the broadly ovate, serrated foliage matures to a dusty dark green with fuzzy gray-green undersides, and in fall broadcasts purple-red shades. Dome-shaped clusters of red buds herald the posh pink flowers which brighten to a satiny white, emitting the most irresistible Daphne-like perfume.

Mingling amid other broadleaf shrubs, positioned alone or employed as a hedge, the energetic deciduous ‘Diana’ should stay close to a well-traveled, moist sunny spot.

Blooms late March to mid-April.

Size: 5' 0"–6' 0" high x 5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
