Viburnum dilatatum 'Michael Dodge'

Linden Viburnum

Tips for Homeowners:

Prune as needed after flowering (leave flowers to allow for berries in the fall). Another variety, not necessarily the same variety, may be necessary for cross-pollination for an increase in berry production. Good pollinator for 'Cardinal Candy'.

Interesting Notes about Linden Viburnum:

A good Viburnum for moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade, this is a shrub that tolerates a wide range of soil types.
