Product Information

A popular, easy to grow flowering shrub that is perfect for UK gardens and an ideal candidate for mixed native hedging.

Viburnum opulus is also known as the Guelder Rose and is a bushy, deciduous shrub with striking blooms and masses of bright, translucent red berries.

Its lobed, maple-like leaves turn fiery shades of red and purple in the autumn adding a glorious show of colour to the garden.

Most noted for its voluminous clusters of hydrangea-like flowers, this viburnum bursts into bloom from early May and the flowers are followed by the distinctive red berries that are adored by birds and other wildlife.

Recommended as a Plant for Pollinators by the RHS, you can be sure that this shrub is also a proven garden performer, robust and vigorous, and guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as a bare root plant, ready for immediate planting. Will reach approx. 8m x 4m and is perfect for a flowering hedge or as a specimen plant in borders.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Viburnum opulus Guelder Rose:

  • Select an appropriate spot for your plant, making sure that you give them enough space to grow to their full size.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone (wash your hands afterwards!)
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as the soil mark on the trunk.
  • Holding the tree or plant upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, and gently shake the plant, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Use your heel to compact the soil around the plant to ensure good contact around the roots.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy - our Premium Professional Compost mix is particularly good - and some sand or grit to aid drainage.
  • You are again aiming to plant to the depth of the soil mark.
  • Firm down as you fill, and press down hard with your heel when the pot is full.

 

Aftercare of your Viburnum Guelder Rose:

  • Plant in any good soil in full sun or partial shade.
  • Perfect for hedging, the Guelder Rose will tolerate exposed sites and coastal areas.
  • Water regularly until established.


Pruning Advice for Guelder Rose:

  • After flowering prune established specimens, removing up to one in five of the oldest and weakest branches to the base.
  • Plants will also tolerate a harder, regenerate prune if they become poor shaped after a few years.
  • Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant after pruning.
