Viburnum odoratissimum Emerald Lustre


Viburnum Odoratissimum Emerald Lustre Fed up with Nosy Norman peering over your fence to tut at the patchy lawn while you’re reading a magazine? Viburnum Emerald Lustre is the people’s choice for a fast growing thick screen. It has leathery, oval, mid-green leaves that emerge in pretty bronze, then in summer sweet- smelling delicate white flowers appear followed by small berries in Autumn.

No wonder it’s so popular. Emerald Lustre needs little care once established, but it responds well to clipping. If left alone it’ll grow to four metres and block out all those neighbours. You can grow this versatile viburnum as hedging or as a bushy evergreen on the deck. A shiny evergreen on the patio year-round breaks up that bare, cold scene and provides shelter and food for birds too. It’s so hardy that it’ll tolerate wind, cold, droughts and light frost. It’s a virtually bomb-proof evergreen screen perfect for beginners, busy folk, and those who like reading magazines.

Quick Facts

  • What to use me for: I make a tall evergreen hedge or screen and a bushy container plant.

  • I grow to:  I can reach the dizzying heights of four metres tall and two metres wide. 

  • I am currently:  A baby just waiting for my forever home.

  • Where to place me: Full sun please but partial shade is fine too.

  • How Far to space me:  For a tight screen I need one metre to 1.5 metres from my neighbour.

  • Soil conditions: Any fertile soil suits me, I’m not fussy but it can’t be waterlogged. Fertilise me once a year and lay some mulch around my roots. It won’t be long before I’m fully fledged.

    Beautifully grown and mature in size with developed roots and guaranteed sun hardend. These plants can be inserted straight into the ground and make an excellent garden plant.

    We carefully package your plants into a custom size box to ensure safe transport and a healthy plant delivered to your door.

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
