Description The cultivar ‘Spring Bouquet’ is a dwarf form Laurestinus which only grows 3’-5’ tall but still retains the beautiful bright pink flowers of the non-dwarfing species.

Spring Bouquet viburnum is a dwarf evergreen species that typically grows 4’-6’ in a dense but upright vase shape. It bears shiny green oblong leaves 2”-3” long, set in an opposite manner.

During the winter months this plant sets large flattened clusters of smaller pink berry-like balls, which remain closed. With the longer days of April these buds open to become reddish-pink and later, fragrant white flowers. The flowers have a honey scent when they are open in the spring.

By June the flowers have dropped their petals to form metallic blue, quarter inch, ovoid berries which later mature to a blue-black color.

Full sun to partial shade. Spring Bouquet makes a fine hedge, screen or foundation plant. As its name implies, it bears stems which can be cut for long lasting floral arrangements.

None reported.
