Viburnum obovatum Walters’ Viburnum

Viburnum_Walt300

Viburnum obovatum is native to the wetlands of Florida and can tolerate an occasional wet soil, but is also drought tolerant. In the spring tiny white tubular flowers will cover the plant for 2-3 weeks, and are great for attracting butterflies. These flowers are then followed by clusters of blue black berries which attract birds. Walters’ Viburnum has small leathery dark green leaves and can grow to a height of 12-25′ and a width of 6-10′. This shrub works well as a topiary, espalier, hedges, or even a screen.
