Maple Leaf Viburnum Seedlings - Viburnum Acerifolium
When starting a landscaping project, maple leaf viburnum seedlings are almost always at least considered. This shrub is one of the staple landscape plants for most of the Eastern half of North America. They are native to and can be found growing naturally all the way from Canada to Florida and as far west as Texas. It is an excellent solution to hard to fill landscape spots and is also famous as a privacy shrub.
One of the reasons that this shrub is so widely used and much appreciated by landscapers is its ability to flourish in an extensive variety of conditions, including many that other plants do not tolerate. They will establish and develop well in a wide range of pH, soil types, and moisture. They can also be transplanted easily. They will grow well in the shade, but also flourish in full sun if given adequate water.
Mapleleaf viburnum grown 5-6 feet tall and about 4 feet wide and looks best if left to develop to its full potential, instead of being pruned.
This shrub offers beautiful spring blooms as well as striking fall colors. The blossoms, which typically last from May to June, are small and white. The clusters contrast with the shrub's dark leaves and have a lovely smell. In the fall, as its name would imply, the maple leaf has foliage that turns a beautiful, dark, red-purple color. They also have berries that start to form in late summer. These berries are a bright red that darkens to black as they ripen. When ripe they attract many types of birds, including songbirds.
This shrub can be planted in the spring or fall and once established only needs watering in extreme drought. Given its versatility, ease of establishment, and the minimal amount of effort required to maintain it, the maple leaf is a beautiful plant for transforming your yard.
This woodland shrub is rather small (3-6' at maturity) and rounded and grows best in full sun to partial shade. Attractive white blooms appear in June.
ReviewsNative Landscaping and Consulting LLCI was not mailed seedlings, I was mailed root cuttings. What I was sent has little to no roots at all, and no fine roots hairs that seedlings have. Still, there were a few more cuttings than I ordered, and the cuttings have about 18"-30" of top growth. I guess overall I'm ok with what I got, but I was lead to believe I would be getting seedlings.
