Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Carol Cloud Bailey
Sandanqua viburnum is an evergreen shrub that is great for hedges and screening in warmer zones. This southern Japanese native is tremendously versatile. It tolerates both moderate drought and wet soils in full sun and part shade exposures. It has a dense, upright growth habit with dark green leaves. It does flower with pale pink clusters, but may have a fragrance some find disagreeable.
For best growth as a dense screen or hedge, plant Sandanqua viburnum in full sun in a moist, well drained soil. Its growth will be fast. It tolerates conditions near building foundations. With its good green foliage, this species is a great background plant for shorter, more colorful or wispy palms, shrubs and perennials.
