Viburnum odoratissimum is commonly known as Sweet Viburnum.
Certainly the most popular of the viburnums, this striking, rather grand shrub, with its glossy green, stout, leathery leaves, looks good throughout the year. Although it has white flowers and then fruits, these are less important, as this excellent screening shrub is grown for its superb foliage. Although it has been found to tolerate frost down to -8°C, it is less robust than other viburnums.
- It is a tall, fast growing shrub
- Forms a dense screening hedge quickly
