    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prefers moist, well-drained soils but will tolerate wet ones. Struggles in hot, dry conditions. Dwarf variety needs little pruning. Fertilize in spring if desired.

    Lil' Ditty is capable of developing attractive berries, however, it is the only selection of this type that is widely available on the market, so finding a suitable pollinator is difficult. Fortunately, the flowers, high-quality foliage, and useful dwarf habit of Lil' Ditty is enough to make it worthy of planting in your landscape or garden, even if no companion is around for fruit to form.

    • 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.

    • 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 compact
