Viburnum odoratissimum 'Coppertop'
There can be three different colours on this new shrub at the same time. The dark green mature leaves, the copper-red new foliage and the white flowers make it a real eye-catcher. The masses of sensationally smelling flowers are attractive to bees and other pollinators. Very hardy and easy to grow.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any good garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Feed with a good general fertiliser in spring. Trim to shape and size once flowers have finished.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather.
