The butterflies will come to gather nectar from the fragrant clusters of creamy-white blooms. The long-lasting blooms support honey bees and other beneficial insects that play a critical role in our global food web. Winterthur has long been noted for its glossy, textured leaves. Even in dappled shade, they’ll capture, reflect and twinkle in any available light all season long.

#ProPlantTips for Care:Winterthur Viburnum performs well in average garden soil, but also tolerates damp soils. It needs at least four hours of sunlight a day to stay happy and healthy. Don’t plant too close to walls, as they appreciate good air circulation. It can be grown in either full sun or partial shade without much fuss, muss, or maintenance.
Wait until after the flowers are finished to correct any branching. Please plan for their eventual mature height and width to avoid pruning for size control. They flower on last year’s growth, so don’t delay too long to prune crossing or broken branches. Develop a pruning plan and avoid taking off too much…you’d hate to risk losing the gorgeous berries for the year. Instead, Renewal prune every 3 – 4 years by removing the oldest fattest stems to the ground and encouraging new growth still enjoy the berries.
For the best berry production, plant several Winterthur or include BrandywineÔäó Viburnum in your planting scheme.
