Ornamental Features

Emerald Envy® Lantanaphyllum Viburnum is blanketed in stunning clusters of creamy white flowers held atop the branches in mid spring. It has dark green foliage which emerges light green in spring. The glossy narrow leaves remain dark green throughout the winter. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The smooth gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

Landscape Attributes

Emerald Envy® Lantanaphyllum Viburnum is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

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.

Emerald Envy® Lantanaphyllum Viburnum is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening

Planting & Growing

Emerald Envy® Lantanaphyllum Viburnum will grow to be about 8 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 8 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 slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.

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.
