Viburnum acerifolium (Mapleleaf Viburnum) 4-7 ft. tall; one of the most popular Viburnum; thrives in the shade; leaves resemble those of maples and sport beautiful fall color. Zone 4-8.
Arrived in good condition with leaves that have stayed for several weeks now after being a bit limp on arrival. A little smaller than expected. I mail ordered little shrubs from 7 businesses this year and this order was one of the top two for packing. Sprayed right away with deer/rabbit repellent as this species got chomped the last time I ordered (from elsewhere).
Ordered three, all came quickly and in excellent condition
I ordered the plant in late October. When the Viburnum arrived it was about 2ft tall, single trunk with healthy leaves and lots of buds. The rootball looked very healthy. The plant was larger than I expected for the price. It went straight into the ground. Two weeks later it still looks great! Looking forward to the spring. One of the best packing and shipping jobs I've ever seen from a mail order nursery!
The Viburnum arrived in great shape, with a full root ball and no sign of dehydration. I transferred it to a pot and fully watered it right away as it would not go in the ground for several days. It is in its home now and is a happy plant. I am delighted that these natives are available in root ball as opposed to bare root form. I've had mixed results with bare root, many arriving so dehydrated it was hard to recover them.
Mine were about 14-16" with strong sturdy growth and were well rooted in the pot. MON did a nice job packing them for shipment even though it was warmer than usual.
Plant arrived within two days of shipment. It appears to be healthy. Looking forward to spring growth.
