One of my favorite deciduous plants in my shrub border is Burkwood Viburnum (Viburnum burkwoodii). All types of the spring flowering Viburnums are wonderful, but I really like this one. It makes a good, large plant for a screen, or it can be limbed up into a tree form specimen. The spicy fragrance is terrific but not overpowering. And guess what? It is easy to grow in our native soils and responds well to pruning. Although the only pruning the one in the photo has had is to cut the flowers for arrangements. Blooms usually last about two weeks, and it flowers right after the forsythia are finishing. This fragrant Viburnum is one you will have a hard time finding at our local nurseries.
