Viburnum Mariesii - another photo request

alfharris8alfharris8 Posts: 513
Does anyone have a photo of their Viburnum Mariesii to upload here please? 
I am hoping @Silver surfer may have a nice one but all welcome.
I think @Silver surfer should get a nice coffee table book published of their lovely shrub photos 😊.

    @alfharris8 Sorry I cannot help with a photo but I can recommend V plicatum Mariesii.
    In flower it is the first thing you will notice and grows in tiers which is unusual. I have looked after one in the past it does need space to grow outwards as well as upwards.
    I hope @Silver surfer  might be able to help you, photos are helpful and beautiful.

    Thank you @GardenerSuze
    I find real life photos very useful. So often on websites you only get part of the plant shown. I can provide it with space but sometimes lack confidence with positioning things.

    @alfharris8 If you do have the space, aspect and growing conditions I cannot recommend it enough. Looking at a space and visualizing how a plant will fit can be difficult. It makes a stand alone specimen in flower and needs plenty of width to grow so that it can form it's tiers without pruning, that is important.

    My daughter has one but it is still fairly young. She liked it so she gave me one. This is hers in 2021.



    This is my baby one last autumn with red leaves.

    @Busy-Lizzie That looks perfectly placed. In flower they light up the garden and take centre stage. Lovely autumn colours too.

    @Busy-Lizzie - thank you. 
    How pretty it looks and illustrates the horizontal growth perfectly.

    Wonderful photos as always. 
    Thank you very much @Silver surfer
    I like them too and the rabbits don't so an additional bonus.

    @Silversurfer I think every garden should have at least one Viburnum, Lovely photos of a very special shrub.

    Thanks.
    Viburnums.....so underrated.
    Super flowers, berries, autumn colour.
    Scent on some.
    Others flower on bare wood in winter.

    Below is a favourite of mine.
    Viburnum setigerum.
    Enjoy!
