Product Description

We like to bring our customers plants that we call 'good-doers', and this lovely Viburnum certainly is that - combining four distinct periods of garden interest in one easy-to-grow hardy shrub.

Awarded the Best New Plant at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2015, 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' erupts into flower, with tiered layers of white lacecap blooms in April and May - giving rise to its sometimes used common name of the Wedding Cake Tree. These age a lovely blush pink, often with many overlapping tones on the plant at once.

This is followed in summer by bright red berries, which help feed the birds and other wildlife, before it surprises you again with a smaller autumn re-flowering. Then, in a final blaze of glory, it sheds its bright autumn leaves, as it hibernates in preparation for another year of garden thrills.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot., Viburnum Sunrise is a compact growing shrub at just 2.5m (8ft) tall and 1.5m (5ft) wide after 7-10 years, it makes a lovely mixed border specimen.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Viburnum plicatum 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise'

  • Grow Viburnum plants in a sunny or semi shaded position, in any moderately fertile, well-drained soil.
  • Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the soil.
  • Plant your Viburnum at the same depth as it was planted in its pot.
  • Backfill the planting hole and water well to settle the soil.

Aftercare Advice for your 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' Viburnum

  • Water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants are fully established.
  • In spring, apply a mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant.
  • Keep plants well-watered and apply a mulch to prevent the soil from drying out.


Pruning Advice for Viburnum

  • Viburnum requires little pruning. Any vertical shoots that emerge can be cut back to their point of origin in summer after flowering and any damaged or dead branches can be cut back to a healthy bud after flowering.
