Viburnum plicatum tomentosum Tree Form

This Tree is not available for Sale at this time through Bower & Branch. Bower & Branch provides this information for reference only. Please check back with us or contact us for more detail.

Our Tree Form Doublefile Viburnum is a fresh take on an old favorite. We’ve raised up this beloved shrub on a short trunk, so you can face this beaut eye-to-eye in all seasons. In spring, you’ll love the crisp white flowers, and in summer, the birds will delight in the glossy red fruits that turn black when they’re ripe. Doublefile’s stunning fall color transformation—first a dusky purple and later a rich burgundy-red—begins at the first hint of a chill in the air and lasts a long time. All year long this classic shrub with the new look will work hard to earn a premium place in your landscape.

The Story

Doublefile Viburnum gets its name from the way the flower clusters march down the branches in ordered pairs.  If you look closely, you’ll see there are two types of flowers on this shrub.  An outer ring of flashy, stark-white, “sterile” flowers announces to pollinators, “Eat here!”while the fuzzy “fertile” flowers in the middle provide the actual meal.  Doublefile Viburnum grows wild in China and Japan and was introduced to Westerners in 1865.  Growing it as a small tree is a novel treatment of this beauty that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.

The Details

Take a double take at this! Your typical Doublefile Viburnum literally taken to the next level. This tree form version still shows the unique horizontal branch habit and outstanding white flowers in early spring. The textured green foliage turns shades of burgundy in fall and red berries change to black (a delicacy to birds!). A unique addition to any garden.

How to Grow

This handsome little specimen isn’t terribly fussy, but it does appreciate some love thrown its way.  Give it lots of sunshine in the North; south of the Mason-Dixon Line, it wants afternoon shade.  Regular irrigation is a must, though excess water should drain away promptly, or the plant will drown.  Doublefile Viburnum naturally forms horizontal, wedding-cake layers of flowers, so give it a position where it can be viewed from above—say, at the foot of a slope or retaining wall or beneath a second-story window.
