Sandankwa ViburnumViburnum suspensum
Sandankwa Viburnum is a handsome evergreen with a spreading habitat and coarse texture. It is an attractive compact form growing to 6-12 feet in height with about an equal spread if left untrimmed. The coarse leaves are dark and densely cover the shrub. In late winter and sporadically throughout the spring and summer the sandankwa produces small waxy tubular flowers held in tight panicles that are 1.5 inches in diameter. Flowers are white with pinkish tints and give way to small round red berries in autumn.
Use and Management
Sandankwa Viburnum likes moist, well-drained, fertile soil. Prune as needed in spring and summer to control fast-growing shoots to maintain the desired shape and size.
It makes a splendid foundation shrub in temperate zones. The sandankwa is a good choice for trimmed hedges of medium height and often seen on commercial landscapes screening parking lots and other eyesores. Use as foreground plant with other similar plantings.
