Deeply veined, dark green leathery leaves are densely packed on Viburnum plicatum Popcorn, and bear fantastic creamy white, popcorn shaped flowers, earning its name! Small fruits are followed by reddish-purple autumn foliage. Like all viburnums, this makes a great all-round specimen plant for your garden or border.

  • Deciduous shrub
  • Fully hardy
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Low maintenance
  • Relatively disease and pest free
  • Any moist, well-drained soil
  • Any aspect
  • Full sun or partial shade

In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Viburnum requires little pruning. After flowering, cut back stems to a healthy bud and reduce any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant.
