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.
Headlining pretty pink, flat topped lacecaps poised on tiered horizontal branches, this sterling Viburnum selection from New Zealand promises a repeat autumn bloom and consistently pink flowers year after year unlike other cultivars that fade to white. Broad handsome deciduous foliage–dark green, prominently veined and purplish red come fall–cloaks her easy-going rounded frame. Full of rosy panache, ‘Molly Schroeder’ can be planted alongside Sambucus ‘Black Beauty’ and Physocarpus ‘Dart’s Gold’ with Epimedium ‘Amber Queen’ blanketing the ground below for a festive springtime vignette.
Blooms late April–May.
Size: 5' 0" – 8' 0" high x 5' 0" – 8' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
