Viburnums are broadleaved, evergreen shrubs or small trees that thrive throughout most of Florida. They are cold-hardy and withstand temperatures of 20 degrees F and ever lower, depending upon length of exposure. Viburnums have limited salt tolerance.
Planting: Best growth can be expected when plants are set in well-drained, improved soil, in full sun or partial shade.
Fertilizing Viburnum should be fertilized at least two or three times during the growing season. Use Espoma Plant-Tone, Sunniland 6-6-6 or Osmocote.
Plant Problems:Twig die-back: Branch tips die back and turn black; leaves wilt and turn brown.
Solution: remove and dispose of infected twigs, then spray with Systemic Fungicide.
