    Uses Notes: 

    This dwarf, low-growing version of doublefile viburnum creates dozens of new landscaping opportunities. Its strongly horizontal impact makes it ideal for planting on walls or permanent planter boxes, as well as for planting at the front of beds or along walkways. 

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Like other viburnum, Wabi-Sabi needs little special care. Plant in well-drained soil and sun to part sun for best results. Pruning should  not be required regularly, but if you wish to prune, do so after flowering. 

    Fun Facts: 

    Both viburnums and hydrangeas can have either mophead or lacecap style flowers. Mophead flowers have a majority of showy sterile florets for a big, snowball effect; lacecap have more fertile florets for a starry effect. As plants in the wild tend to exhibit the lacecap variation naturally, lacecap forms generally look more at home in informal or woodland landscapes.
