Viburnum Cardinal Candy Shrubs for Sale Online
Cardinal Candy® Viburnum has improved hardiness compared to other dilatatum varieties, so northern gardeners can finally enjoy the impressive fruit of this viburnum.
When a -25 degree cold spell killed all the Viburnum dilatatum seedlings except one, Indiana's Rod Henneke knew he had something special. Viburnum Cardinal Candy was born and has improved hardiness compared to other dilatatum varieties, so northern gardeners can finally enjoy the impressive fruit of this viburnum.
Bright red, extraordinary, and abundant berries make for a stunning display in the fall. Fruiting appears to be strong even without another pollinator in the area. Tons of creamy white flowers cover the plant in spring (May in Michigan). The plant has an excellent, well-branched habit and fits nicely into the landscape.
