All Shades of Green—-A Plant Perspective

Viburnum in December


One of the best blues in the plant world is the berry of David’s viburnum.  It sparkles like a distant northern star in the winter garden.  Dawn viburnum is just peeking out in shades of pale pink, petals before foliage on this plant.

  1. What a lovely viburnum for your area…I have a similar that looks like blueberries on the bush called Viburnum Blue Muffin…Birds love it and strip it clean in fall.

  2. Viburnum davidii is a very underrated plant, probably because of its overuse in instituional and mass plantings. I love the texture and darkness of the leaves and how trouble-free it is…Viburnum davidii, I miss you so…
