    Maintenance Notes: 

    Viburnums are very low maintenance plants. They don't require regular pruning, though it's a good idea to remove very old stems each year after the plant has been established for several years, as old stems do not flower and fruit as abundantly as younger ones. Berry-producing viburnums like Yin and Yang should not be pruned at all; plant at least one of each within 50'/15.25m of one another to ensure a good fruit set on both. Note: even though Yin and Yang viburnums appear to be identical, it is essential to plant at least one of each selection if you want berries to develop. 

    Plant in well-drained soil. Viburnums are quite shade tolerant, but habit, flowering, and fruiting will be best if the plant gets some sun. 

    If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.
