With its fragrant spring blooms and attractive habit, this compact Korean Spice viburnum is a great addition to gardens. Stronger growing than other compact varieties, it's a great choice for smaller landscapes, providing all of the spicy, intoxicating spring fragrance of traditional Koreanspice viburnum in a petite package.

  • I put four of these in last year, and separate also planted 4 of the normal Korean Spice. The Spice Baby does not have near the fragrance that they Korean Spice has. They were marketing / sold to me as being nearly the same identical plant, but there is a huge difference in the scent. I am disappointed in the Spice Baby because unless you stick your noise into the flowers, they don't have a scent. That is really not 'fragrant'. in contrast, you can smell the normal Korean Spice shrubs several feet away.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
