New Plants Holland present Viburnum Range
Three varieties from their Vibernum range are presented this month by New Plants Holland.
Viburnum tinus Lisarose 'Loren' (pbr)
A compact and evergreen, winter-hardy shrub. The buds appear on the plants as early as August. These dark pink buds bloom as small white flowers from October until late April.
The dark-pink buds protrude above the foliage. The beautiful pink colour is only really clearly visible if there has been a very cold period.
Other varieties in their assortment are:
Viburnum plicatum Kilimandjaro® (pbr) 'JWW-1'
Viburnum plicatum Kilimandjaro® grows like a pyramid that looks like the snow covered Kilimandjaro when it flowers with its white lacecap flowers. All four seasons long, Kilimandjaro® is a special appearance. It first flowers in May with large white lacecaps. After a growth period, Kilimandjaro® will flower again late summer with bright white flowers.
Between the two flowering seasons, the flowers turn into red berries that slowly colour black. Last but not least, Kilimandjaro® has a beautiful autumn colouration with warm red and yellow tones.
Viburnum plicatum Kilimandjaro® Sunrise (pbr) 'JWW5'
Pink flowers and berries - Viburnum plicatum Kilimandjaro® Sunrise (above) grows slightly slower than Klilimandjaro®, has pinkish flowers and a lush amount of berries. Its leaves are also slightly smaller and darker.
With its flowers and berries, Kilimandjaro® Sunrise is a year round attraction in the garden. These species are perfectly suited as a patio plant, but can also be used as a solitary plant in the garden.
The Viburnum plicatum Kilimandjaro Sunrise won the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year award in 2015.
