Gardeners' Notes:

Positive outdoorlover On Mar 31, 2014, outdoorlover from Enid, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

Planted two of these 1 1/2 years ago and they are doing very well. However, I lost the 2 trees which formerly shaded them so we will see how they perform in hot, hot Oklahoma sun. Considered moving them, and might still. If they don't fare well this summer and are still alive, I'll move them in the fall.

This plant thrived as a container specimen for 12 years before I planted it into its permanent location. Having now been in the ground for over 3 years, it has really become quite spectacular. Viburnums are not well-known in my area as being sun, heat and drought tolerant, yet this plant has survived all with flying colors. The fragrance of the blooms rivals that of jasmine and gardenia.

Positive TBGDN On Feb 12, 2006, TBGDN from (Zone 5a) wrote:

I cannot imagine giving this plant anything but A+ for its performance here in Zone 5a/b. I found this cultivar almost 11 years ago at a large garden center in what looked like a five-gallon pot. The top growth was already at 3+ feet. I planted it at the front of the house near the doorway, and today it stands at a well rounded 8'. I have since added another one near the back entrance. It blooms very early, usually around the last week in April here. Intensely fragrant, very hardy, and little care and pruning are needed.

The Judd viburnum is a hybrid between V. bitchiuense and V. carlesii but is superior to either of them. It is an open rounded shrub that is suited for full sun to part shade, well drained slightly acidic soils.
