Comments: When it comes to fragrance, the burkwood viburnum is an excellent choice for a sweet-scented shrub that grows to approximately ten feet tall with a seven-foot spread. It is best adapted to the upper portion of the country. It produces pink flower buds and large rounded clusters of white flowers tinged in pink in spring. The cultivar 'Conoy' is fine selection with dark green, shiny leaves. Leaf spots and powdery mildew can sometime be a problem, especially when this viburnum is grown in the Lower South.
