Landscaping Attributes

Steady Eddy® Doublefile Viburnum is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. 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.

Steady Eddy® Doublefile Viburnum is recommended for the following landscape applications;

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

Ornamental Features

Steady Eddy® Doublefile Viburnum is smothered in stunning white lacecap flowers with creamy white overtones held atop the branches from mid spring to mid summer. It has dark green deciduous foliage. The textured pointy leaves turn an outstanding brick red in the fall.

Planting & Growing Tips

Steady Eddy® Doublefile Viburnum will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, 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 shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. To help this plant achive its best flowering performance, periodically apply a flower-boosting fertilizer from early spring through into the active growing season. 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 is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
