This Variety is the Spice of Outdoor Life

Is it time for a “spice-y” landscape? Consider adding some zest to your landscape with Viburnum carlesii ‘Spice Baby™’ from Proven Winners, also known as Koreanspice Viburnum.

This viburnum – a deciduous shrub with showy flowers and berries – offers a spicy, almost exotic spring fragrance and lush green foliage. It blooms with pink flowers in spring, which turn bright white in summer. Beyond providing visual interest, its berries also make Koreanspice Viburnum a nice habitat specimen for wildlife.

Perhaps the greatest ingredient to the success of this variety is its seasonal interest. The Koreanspice Viburnum puts on a glorious show in fall, as the berries darken and the leaves turn a wine red.

Everyone loves Viburnum Carlesii.

Viburnum Carlesii is pretty enough on its own but is particularly enticing as shrub border and screen plant. Given its heady aroma earlier in the growing season, plant this variety near seating areas, windows or other spots where it can provide a multisensory experience.

Keep this in mind when adding this plant to your landscape:

  • Hardy in zones 4-8
  • Plant in full sun or part sun
