Question:

How do you care for Viburnum?


Answer:

Remove any rubber bands or twist ties from the stems, remove most all the foliage then recut the woody stems, removing at least 1 inch of stem. Do not mash or smash the stem ends - doing so will inhibit the water uptake. Place them into clean containers filled with lukewarm water (100° F - 110° F) with flower food mixed according to package directions.

Viburnum have low ethylene sensitivity.

Check the water level daily, and add flower-food according to pack directions as needed. Recut the stems every two or three days to ensure effective water uptake.

VASE LIFE: Viburnum flowers can last from five to seven days.

BOTANICAL NAME: Viburnum opulus (vy-BUR-num OP-ewe-lus)
