I grow this viburnum in good soil and poor soil, no irrigation. It looks good always, smooth nice foliage. I live in the woods, and deer do not bother it, and it does not attract insect pests.

Purchased this plant October 2017. The foliage was awesome and it fits in amongst a low groundcover near the front of the border. Amazing fall color.Kevin Kelly, Pennsylvania, United States, 4 years ago
Nice compact plant with clean foliage and lots of white flowers in the spring. Kind of reminds me of Winterthur Viburnum, but more dense and compactDave Levan, Pennsylvania, United States, 5 years ago
