Viburnum Lantana 40-60 cm Wayfaring Tree x 5
The Wayfaring Tree - Viburnum Lantana is a large deciduous native shrub that carries large hairy leaves that turn brilliant crimson in Autumn.
Superb as a hedging plant on it's own or mixed with other hedging.
White flowers are produced in the spring followed by strings of red fruit that blackens as it ripens.
Good in most soils including chalk and limestone.
The planting season is between November and late March while the plant is in dormant growth. Dig a reasonable hole and plant with either some rose, tree and shrub compost or any organic matter (but not fresh manure, well rotted is fine) and plant with some bone meal or fish, blood and bone as this will encourage quick root growth.
Do not water once planted (unless the ground is very dry), so the plant will find it's own water (make it work for it's water, creating strong root growth).
Once established this plant will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
Plant 4 per metre in a staggered row (in a double row 50cm apart and the rows 30cm apart). Clipping the top leader on planting to encourage bushy growth.
These plants are supplied in bundles of 5 and are 40-60cm tall and are bare root.
