Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum 'Pink Beauty'

Doublefile Viburnum

Plant Type:

DECIDUOUS SHRUBS

Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum ‘Pink Beauty’ – This form of Doublefile Viburnum is similar to ‘Molly Schroeder’ with a difference. 'Pink Beauty' can develop amazing rose pink color but this appears to be culturally dependent - to some extent in its siting but also the vagaries of the particular growing season may have effect. But generally profuse lacecap cymes open white with perhaps a touch of pink in some florets. This pink tint increases and deepens as the flowers mature. The color is superb. The shrub’s form is more upright, generally taller than wide demonstrating somewhat more restrained and slower growth than many other Viburnum plicatum. Autumn color is red-purple sometimes with a bronze overlay.

Genus Overview: Viburnum

Common Name: Viburnum

This genus is full of fantastic, multi-season garden worthy shrubs. Spring flowers, often large and showy, many with heady sweet fragrance are arranged in cymes. Flowers are followed with berries. If late season and autumn berries are desired then planting two of a species will ensure fruit set; for instance, Viburnum dilatatum 'Erie' and V. dilatatum 'Michael Dodge' will pollinate each other and produce fruit; V. nudum 'Winterthur' and V. nudum var. angustifolium will cross with each other. But V. nudum is very closely allied with V. cassinoides and all of these will cross pollinate and provide late season fruit. Another interesting example is V. lantana which crosses with V. burejaeticum and vice versa. Any V. plicatum selection such as 'Shasta' will pollinate with all other V. plicatum selections. But if you were to plant two 'Shasta' side by side with no other V. plicatum in near proximity then your effort will be fruitless. The berries are magnificent and so welcome in the late season garden. And they feed all manner of birds. Larger, denser shrubs provide cover and nesting opportunities. Nearly all Viburnum have terrific autumn foliage colors, too. Viburnums are members of Caprifoliaceae. All prefer part to full sun and fertile soils. All are cutting grown.
