notes

Viburnum burkwoodii is one of the best scented varieties and a perfect specimen shrub for year-round interest. It has glossy, dark green leaves and produces clustered domes of fabulously fragrant white or pink flowers. Plant this shrub near a path or entrance in a partly shady position to best appreciate its fragrance.

Insights
