The 'Withlacoochee'® Viburnum is an upright natural selection that exhibits superior features for use in a variety of landscaping projects. It is highly prized for its attractive growth habit, adaptability to various soil and light conditions, drought tolerance, disease resistance, and wildlife habitat value. The most striking feature that separates this this selection from other Walter's Viburnums is its unique, dark green foliage that is stunning at first glance. The large shrub or small tree at maturity reaches 10-12' in height and spreads 6-10'. In the landscape the 'Withlacoochee'® stays uniform in its growth habit and does not get "leggy" as many of the Viburnum species do, requiring less pruning and maintenance. It also exhibits a showy white bloom in the spring and maroon foliage during the winter months in response to cold weather. Separating itself from other Walter's Viburnum species that are semi-deciduous, the 'Withlacoochee'® tends to hold more of its leaves in the winter and keeps a very full appearance. While in its growth stage, small blooms will appear near the base of the plant as the focus is geared more towards foliage growth. 'Withlacoochee'® has a habit of sending out 6-10" spikes of new growth, filling itself in, and then spiking out again. Because of this quality, minimal pruning is required. When the 'Withlachoochee'® reaches its full height, the energy will then be devoted to the bloom, and begin to cover the entire shrub.
