Add top soil (or organic peat moss) and composted cow manure to the hole when you plant. Trim regularly if you want to keep your plants well-manicured...or just occasionally for a naturally mounded look. Odoratissimum will grow out of a "haircut" fast; suspensum takes a bit longer. Do a hard pruning in spring after the shrub has finished flowering. Water on a regular basis, with enough time between waterings for the plant to dry out a bit.
- Light Needs: Full Sun or Partial Sun
- Watering Needs: Regular Moisture for Outdoor Plants
Viburnum suspensum is an evergreen Viburnum growing 6 to 12 feet high. It is very popular in Florida gardens. The foliage is leathery green, the fragrant flowers are white with a pink tinge, on 2 to 4 inch panicles. It seems to prefer hot and dry climates with sandy soil, very unlike other Viburnums. It is used for screening, hedges, and as an accent. It is not a cold hardy plant.
