A compact shrub that is noted for its very waxy, textured leaves with red margins; burgundy fall color; clusters of fragrant, creamy white flowers in early spring, followed by dark red berries in late summer; plant with a pollinator to produce more fruit

Ornamental Features

Shiny Dancer® Viburnum features showy clusters of lightly-scented creamy white flowers at the ends of the branches in mid spring. The dark red fruits which fade to black over time are held in abundance in spectacular clusters from late summer to late fall. It has forest green evergreen foliage which emerges coppery-bronze in spring. The textured narrow leaves turn an outstanding burgundy in the fall, which persists throughout the winter.

Landscape Attributes

Shiny Dancer® Viburnum is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting birds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Shiny Dancer® Viburnum is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Shiny Dancer® Viburnum will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more. This variety requires a different selection of the same species growing nearby in order to set fruit.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
