Product Description

Combining four distinct periods of garden interest in one easy-to-grow hardy shrub, 'Kilimanjaro Sunrise' looks lovely as a specimen plant in a mixed border or a grassy area.

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 occasionally used common name of the Wedding Cake Tree. These pretty white flowers age to 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 reflowering. Then, in a final blaze of glory, its leaves turn to fiery bright red-purple in autumn before falling.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready to plant, growing to a height of 2.5m (8ft) and spread of 1.5m (5ft) after 7-10 years.

Plant Information

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Viburnum

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
